With the combine complete, Dave Caban takes a look at an updated version of the RotoViz Scouting Index. If you’re unfamiliar with the RotoViz Scouting Index (RSI), check out Version 1.0 for more background.1 In a nutshell, the RSI aggregates and compiles NFL prospect rankings from a variety of more traditional scouting outlets and helps in approximating a player’s draft value. Version 2.0 includes some significant changes within the index. However, some of these changes are counterintuitive. I was expecting to see players who struggled at the combine, such as Devin Singletary, plummet in the rankings. However, he and other prospects who posted disappointing measurables managed to climb up the RSI. In subsequent posts, we’ll consider more closely if there’s important information we can glean from particular player’s combine results. 2 This is clearly the result of his strong combine performance. Jackson profiles as an above-average athlete at his position and possesses incredible speed for a player of his size Generating a list of comparable players by equally weighting height, weight, forty-yard dash, bench press, vertical, broad, shuttle, and 3-cone performance provides an encouraging picture of his ability to contribute as a rusher in the NFL.
