High School Star Ratings for the 2011 NFL All-Pro Team

Earlier this week I posted a short article on the 2012 NFL All-Pro team and how many stars they had from Scout and Rivals coming out of high school. It had such a positive response that I decided to do the same thing with the 2011 NFL All-Pro team and compare them to the 2012 All-Pro team.

So here’s the 2011 NFL All-Pro Team and how many stars (the star counts are now hyperlinked to their recruiting profiles) they had from Scout and Rivals coming out of high school (players that graduated high school before 2002 are not in the database):





QB Aaron Rodgers
RB Maurice Jones-Drew 4 4
RB LeSean McCoy 5 4
FB Vonta Leach
WR Calvin Johnson 5 4
WR Wes Welker
TE Rob Gronkowski 4 4
OT Jason Peters
OT Joe Thomas NR 4
G Carl Nicks
G Jahari Evans
C Maurkice Pouncey 4 4
DE Jared Allen
DE Jason Pierre-Paul 5 4
DT Haloti Ngata 5 5
DT Justin Smith
OLB Terrell Suggs
OLB DeMarcus Ware
ILB NaVorro Bowman 4 4
ILB Patrick Willis 2 3
ILB Derrick Johnson
CB Charles Woodson
CB Darrelle Revis 3 3
S Troy Polamalu
S Eric Weddle 2 2
KR Patrick Peterson 5 5

And here’s the All-Pro team’s broken down by star and year (Scout’s stars  and Rivals’ stars are averaged):




5 2 1
4.5 4 1
4 4 4
3.5 0 3
3 1 3
2.5 1 2
2 1 4
Total 13 18
Out of 26 25

While only 13 players from the 2011 All-Pro team were in the database, they still managed to produce 10 players 4-stars or higher. In contrast, the 2012 team had 18 players, but only managed 6 players 4-stars or higher.

But the real story in all of this? Rob Gronkowski.

Rob Gronkowski

Dumbfounded doesn’t even begin to describe whatever is going on up there. And keep in mind, that guy—yes, that guy—was just offered $3.75M to be in an “adult film.”

    take a look at this one, has the same type of information, but from the super bowl rosters. It notes players that graduated high school before 2002, and players that were completely un-ranked coming out of high school


    However, you’ll need some skill at mixing it correctly and using it, and epoxy is also more expensive than most adhesives.

    Tiled – Background. Not a perfect match, but a color that blends and compliments the tile.
