    Default OF: Analysis of Shanahan's Draft Tendencies in Denver

    Damn good stuff, brother.

    Hope you don't mind that I took the liberty ...

    The Daily Redskin 2.12.10

    If you are a Washington Redskins fan in the mood for a little meat on them pre-draft analysis bones, help yourself to some tasty Mike Shanahan draft history and number-crunching from Aston Gambino's always-satisfying (if too infrequent!) blog, Are You Not Entertained?

    Perhaps the most compelling question, if not the most important, is what will new head coach Mike Shanahan do on draft day ...?

    Really good stuff and I know this because I read it on my own time (took today off) rather than on company time. It has to be good to keep me interested when not at work!

    Interesting use of the draft chart too.

    If I were to quibble with anything, it is that you rolled the S and CB positions into an all inclusive DB slot while breaking everything else out. Wonder if it changes any when those positions are considered independently?

    Regardless, there is a lot of great detail work here and I admire that. Awesome job!

    Thanks a lot for the statistical breakdown, Aston. I was really hoping someone would do something like this, it provides essential information for armchair prognosticators. It's obvious you put a lot of effort into this and, believe me, it is well appreciated. Good job indeed!

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    Unfortunately, this position was labeled differently depending on who you asked. Some places called a guy a DB, others would call that same guy a CB. Worse, some sites referred to a safety a DB, others referred to that same guy a S, and another site would call him a SS. Because of this lack of standardization, it seemed to make the most sense to just combine them all under one umbrella, though that certainly did spike the DB totals on the quantity graph. Wasn't too worried about it since the primary focus was QB and OT.

    I figured it was something like that. Bummer too because I can see CB potentially grading out nearly as high as T in this thing. Besides QB and pass rushing DE, T and CB are the two most sought after positions going. It is just possible that the inclusion of S, a position typically left for later in the draft like C unless you have a freak like Ed Reed or Sean Taylor available, drug down the CB numbers. However, you can only work with what you have.

    Still a great job.
