Re: Post Draft Free agency targets

The talk on all the pods and shows seem to indicate Rivera doesn't buy into analytics and makes decisions based on gut feel.

I don't think this reputation is entirely accurate. He just hired a VP of analytics.

He also signed an UDFA RB who charts among the higher rated prospects according to the number crunched.

Patterson is the 8th ranked RB according to the Backcast metric.

Definitely worth a flyer on an UDFA.

What kinda killed Patterson value imo (outside his size) was the fact the offensive system he was in doesn’t feature the RB as a pass catcher. Catching out the backfield has become a big weapon in offenses, so if he can do show that skill…then we def got a steal. Signing Patterson really completed the draft as a win for me, I thought RB is an area we needed as McK and Barber are in final year of deals.

Strikes me as the kind of guy that has every tool in his workshop, not just his favourite drill and saw. Analytics is part of the picture, especially when you are trying to analyse information on hundreds of prospects. But a coach needs to see, talk to and work with guys in the flesh to see the full picture. Analytics will help him look in the right place and at the right things, both when assessing new talent and improving existing talent.
