The NFL Needs MoneyBall

Spotted in Wired Top Stories:

Most NFL teams have a sucky strategy at selecting their draft picks. Why? They're not looking at the numbers and crunching the data.

A few years ago Moneyball showed up, and soon thereafter, it wasn't just teams with less money (like the Oakland A's) that were zeroing in on "the stats that matter". Heck, the Red Sox suddenly became a team that could win a World Series after their new ownership bought into the idea.

Wired thinks it's high time that the NFL followed suit. I'm sure that the long suffering fans of the Detroit Lions would agree :)
