I use my early season visuals not to be anchored into thoughts. I use these data aids to inspire questions, comparisons and more research.
As you go into this post, write down questions and think about the answers.
I first present a drafting landscape of positions, positional runs, and patterns.
Why these patterns? What is the public thinking.
We in some sense are all fighting against the wisdom of the crowd. The ADP is the public and it must be respected. We need to be ahead and know when to go against the popular ideas.
The order of the positions is RBs, TEs, WRs and QBs. The first 4 picks are 3 RBs and 1 WR. and then we see a run of 6 WRs.
The first QB drafted at pick 20 and first TE at the 24 pick.
By end of round 4 the first 24 WRs are gone while only 16 RBs are gone. WRs are still leading the charge.
These next tables highlight the position, the players rank, risk and scale…
