Chart of relationship between recruiting and the draft

by suave_andrew, Wednesday, April 20, 2011, 01:55 @ Jay

Made this about a year ago. This chart simply looks at the the correlation between a long-run amount of players drafted out of a program vs that program's avg star-rating over that time. The y-axis is just the total, or aggregate, number of players taken out of that program - which round they were taken isn't looked at.

It's an average of the four year averages and if I were to do that again, I'd just use a weighted average instead as it'd be more accurate. Either way, I still think it's quite descriptive: how well a team recruits (going by avg star rating) has a near direct and statistically significant relationship with number of draft picks they produce. Which makes sense from an input vs output point of view. I believe the variance comes from how well coaches develop that recruited talent over the course of time; or to put it another way, the value they add to their inputs.
