Ran across a link to this while reading some draft stuff. Interesting in the sense that it's an economists take on smart drafting in the NFL:

Then came across his "quaint" '06 draft review published in May. Basically calls the Falcons losers in the draft:

What caught my eye was this interesting little gem at the end of the article:
Quote:
The best way to test any economic theory is to use it to make predictions, and then evaluate those predictions after the fact. So here goes. The economics of the draft suggests that Green Bay, St. Louis, Minnesota and the New York Jets will improve the most in the coming seasons. Washington, Miami, Denver, Atlanta, Tennessee and New Orleans, the losers in this draft, are headed south.
