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

Tyler Raborn —  Saturday, February 9, 2013 — 1 Comment

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):

Position

Player

Scout

Rivals

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):


Stars

2011

2012

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.”
