NFL Draft Risk
MOBILE-FIRST INTERACTIVE HEAT MAP
The goal for every NFL team in the first round of the draft is to find their next star, a player who will become the face of the franchise for years to come. But how much does their draft slot affect the probability that they'll find that player? To build excitement and fan engagement around the NFL draft, I worked with Bleacher Report to dig through NFL draft data back to 1980 and created an interactive heat map that explores the level of risk of each draft pick.
