    SPARQ Scores drove Steelers draft?

    Interesting article from BTSC. Despite living in Oregon (home of Nike) I was unfamiliar with this form of athleticism rating. I guess you can't know for sure how much this metric played into the actual draft but it does seem to indicate the MOS have started putting a premium on speed and all-around athleticism.

    At least they're consistent in their first round approach, emphasizing athleticism this year, while not giving a sh1t about it in 2013.

    Thanks for that. Athleticism may not necessarily equal future success, but was an interesting read.
