    Now that the rosters are out, and I like Excel, here is a position by position breakdown.

    Offensive Line: I took all of the different attributes and through a series of formulas and how I value the ratings, I came up with a combined score for each team. Cowboys as no surprise have the best run block line and by a wide margin at that. The Bears have the best Pass Blocking offensive line.

    Interesting to note the wider separation between the top pass blocking and the worst ( Over 100 points difference)

    Receivers vs. Defensive Backs

    When comparing like attributes across the spectrum DBs and receivers are pretty close. No big differences in Speed, agility, jumping etc. When looking specifically at countering attributes (MCV vs. Rte Run) and (Press vs. Release) even then there is a slight edge towards receivers by about a point, but the highs the lows and the averages are all about true.

    It is interesting to note, that receivers are top heavy in terms of certain attributes. The top receivers even against the best corners will probably still be able to get off the ball in bump and run coverage and get open against Man, but as you move down the rankings there are a lot more DBs that will be able to cover receivers than receivers that can get open consistently. From a value perspective, elite corners are crucial in stopping the pass, but good corners are likely overvalued as their coverage skills relative to what is necessary to stop receivers is likely even to DBs with lower skill levels.

    QB ratings are interesting. It will be interesting to see with incoming classes if they hover around these trends and the same attribute breakdowns. It seems like DAC is most indicative of overall QB ability. The correlation between DAC and QB overall (as well as other attributes) seems to be the most consistent. There are many QBs of varying skill level with good THP or good SAC, but they don't necessarily translate to QB skill.

    As for the averages, the average QB has a THP of 89, 82/79/74 accuracy.
