    The data I'm going to present are derived from the draft histories presented on http://www.drafthistory.com, and analyzed using MySQL and Perl. I'm interested in what positions are taken in what point in the draft, and I thought I'd present some of the results.

    The years analyzed are from 1994 to the present; all years where we have had a 7 round draft. Player positions are sorted top to bottom by the mean draft position.

    Code:

    POS is player position. HIGH is the highest draft position in the draft this player position has been taken. LOW is the lowest the position has been taken. TOTAL is the total number of players taken with this position. 10 means all players taken between 1 and 10, 30 are all players taken between position 11 in the draft and 30. This continues to 180, where REST is all players taken after the 180th position in the draft. MEAN is the mean draft position players of that kind are taken and err is the standard error of the mean.

    Okay. There are a lot more OTs, DEs, DTs, and QBs taken in the top 30 than any other 30 round segment. QBs in particular seem to be top 10 draft choices or not really valued much at all. DBs and RBs are valued pretty evenly throughout the draft. LBs, valued at all levels, seem to start plateauing around the 3rd round.

    Another draft chart, for the fun of it. This one is listed by college and again ranked by mean. To be on the chart, the team has to have had 10 players drafted in the 7 round period ( 1994-2007 ).

    Do you have this in Excel? I'd like to see draft positions sorted according to % drafted in top 30. Ranked purely by mean, for example, QB is toward the middle of the pack, but ranked by % drafted in top 30 it's be one of the highest.

    Not Excel. I scraped drafthistory.com and put the raw data all in MySQL, one table per year. But it's not that hard to write something (Perl in my case) to sort any old way (or for that matter, export the data sets as CSV files).

    I'll be posting the scrapers, data loaders, and data analysis programs soon. I'm using Perl and Linux, but ActiveState Perl works on Win32 and most code transfers from Linux to Windows and works without changes.

    David.

    This is a piece of code that will scrape data off the drafthistory site and turn it into a CSV file (a comma delimited file that Excel can read).

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    use warnings;
    use strict;
    
    use LWP::UserAgent;
    use HTML::TableExtract;
    
    my $year  = shift || 2007;
    my $url   = "http://www.drafthistory.com/years/$year.html";
    my $agent = new LWP::UserAgent;
    my $page  = $agent->get($url);
    #
    # You normally find two tables here. One is at depth 0 count 0 and
    # is the data you want, the second is at depth 0 count 1 and is
    # some kind of ad info.
    #
    my $filename = "draft-$year.csv";
    open CSV, ">", $filename or die("Cannot open filename $filename.\n");
    if ( $page->is_success() ) {
        my $te = HTML::TableExtract->new( );
        $te->parse( $page->content() );
        my $table = $te->first_table_found;
        my $round = 1;
        for my $row ($table->rows) {
            next unless ( defined($row->[5]));
            if ( $row->[0] =~ /Round/i ) {
                @$row = map { '"' . $_ . '"' } @$row;
            }
            else {
                @$row[3 .. 6] = map { '"' . $_ . '"' } @$row[ 3 .. 6];
                if ( $row->[0] =~ m/\d/ ) {
                    $round = $row->[0];
                }
                else {
                    $row->[0] = $round;
                }
            }
            print join(',', @$row), "\n";
            print CSV join(',', @$row), "\n";
        }
    }
    close(CSV);
    
    Output for the 2007 draft class is:

    This is a data set ranked as you wished. These are draft picks from 1994 to 2007:

    Code:

      T    1  259  277    11.43  10.71   8.33   6.43   6.43   8.10   8.81  119.66    74.76

      C   17  255  105     0.00   1.43   3.81   3.33   2.62   2.62   3.10  139.33    70.25

    The percentages in this case are percentages of the total number of draft picks in that slot. So, the QBs were 14.29% of the 140 draft picks taken between the 1st and 10th draft choice.

    Thanks a ton Mr. Myers. I'll give it a shot tomorrow as I have a feeling it might take me a bit to get it right. :)
