Abstract

This paper examines the impact of character and talent on whether a running back is drafted and on the draft position of that player. Talent is represented by a variety of college and combine statistics. The paper also examines if draft day character and talent measures explain that player’s NFL productivity, measured after 2, 3, 4 & 5 seasons. Data include 374 running backs that played in the NFL from 1999-2018.
