The panel of stat experts share their perspectives on the data that needs to be part of that process.

The Boiler Room Series: Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib

Is the NFL sleeping on Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib or is he Russ Lande's ranking of him as his top player on his draft board crazy talk? Not as crazy as you might think.

The Kaepernick Project: FSU QB E.J. Manuel

In light of the Alex Smith deal, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kansas City Chiefs has an eye on E.J. Manuel as a project to develop behind Alex Smith ala Colin Kaepernick.
