Video: Tony Khan on Jaguars' analytics
By Paul Kuharsky
Tony Khan spearheads the Jaguars' charge into football analytics and spoke with ESPN at the recent MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.
I’m always eager to hear examples of the sort of discoveries that could factor into a team’s thinking in decision-making. Here Khan talks of how offensive tackles selected in the top 10 of the draft have been far more likely in the recent past to wind up Pro Bowl players than players drafted 11th to 32nd.
If you’re not attune to the LCF scores Khan is talking about at the end of the video, you can learn about Lewin Career Forecasts here.
Meanwhile, Jaguars owner Shad Khan is slated to be the commencement speaker at the University of Illinois on May 12.
