    As always, the SEC was well-represented in the NFL draft. The graph below shows how each SEC player was drafted relative to their Composite rating coming out of high school.

    The Y-axis is draft points. Each player was given 100 points for the round in which they were drafted and 1 point for order within that round. For example, Joe Burrow was drafted in the first round (100 points) and was selected 1st in that round (1 point) for a total of 101 points. Fewer points obviously means a higher draft pick.

    The x-axis is the player’s composite rating. The quadrants are created by averages of both axes. Quadrants are labeled 1 through 4, starting on the upper left and working clockwise from there.



    Players in quadrant 1 were not highly rated coming out of high school and were drafted later than the conference average. Players in quadrant 3 were highly rated and drafted earlier. These can be considered accurate outcomes. Quadrants 2 and 4 work in the opposite way. They were either highly rated but drafted later (quadrant 2) or lower-rated and drafted earlier (quadrant 4).



    Most of the players (39.7%) fell into Q3, which is good. Overall, the Composite ratings were a pretty good indicator if a player would live up to their draft potential for SEC teams with an accuracy of 63.5%.

    As always, let me know if you spot any errors. I often make them.

    If you land in quadrant 4 does that mean you were underrated coming out of high school?

    It was my understanding that there would be no math.

    Yep (relative to where you were drafted).

    No math can make that actually happen.

  9. I'm not exactly sure what the OP was trying to say but here's a link to a good article about how the SEC completely DOMINATED the 2020 NFL Draft and why we will continue to get the best recruits out of high school. Five different SEC schools had players picked in the top 10 picks in the NFL draft. No other conference had more than one player picked in the top 10. And according to this article, that disparity is only going to grow.

    SEC !!, SEC !!
