This summer one of our interns, Aaron McKinney, worked on a project toward developing different ways to evaluate the performance of NFL front offices. He opted to go back and look at the career of former Chiefs and Browns General Manager John Dorsey. Aaron went back and graded out Dorsey’s performance in the draft, free agency, and the trade market, utilizing contract data, trade charts, and PFF grading to help quantify the results.
Since Dorsey had such a long history in the NFL this project wound up a very long and in depth piece and we thought that it would be fun to share with the OTC community as a pdf document. If you have any questions you can contact Aaron direct at firstname.lastname@example.org or let me know via email or on Twitter and Ill pass along the questions to him.
You can download a copy of Aaron’s work below.
