In the two years since the introduction of the Phenom Index, the intersection of age and production has gained more traction in the NFL Draft community. Thanks to everyone who has built on this work and done additional research on age factors. Here is the 2016 edition of the Phenom Index for wide receivers. To be perfectly clear, introducing age into the equation doesn’t mean older prospects can’t be good; it just means that expectations are different for older players. After all, the age range of draft-eligible receivers in 2016 spans from 20.4 to 25.4, so doesn’t it make sense that we have a way to adjust for their age? The Phenom Index is my way of doing that.
