    Utilizing our unique, objective approach to player projections and development, presents its 2014 NFL Draft content, including a Seven Round Mock Draft, Position-by-Position Reports, Statistical Breakdowns and Future Projections for all prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft. New this year is the NFL Draft Machine for customizable mock drafts and comprehensive draft evaluation. All NFL Draft Content is FREE from's Paul Bessire and John Ewing as well as NFL Draft Expert Matt Richner.

    Based on the analysis we used to rank every NFL Prospect as well as leveraging the NFL Draft Machine we present our rookie class rankings. All teams are ranked on rookie class impact in the upcoming NFL season. These rankings are a combination of overall impact, weighted impact from the top players and average impact of all players. Though the Cincinnati Bengals do not rank as the best drafting team for the third consecutive year, it is still notable to see that they rank in the top five.

    Below, we show each team's Class Ranking, Power Ranking and Projected Wins Added. Class Rankings sort by a combination of total value added and average value added to each roster. New Power Rankings add drafted players to each roster to instantly re-simulate Power Rankings and compare to Previous Power Rankings (Prev. PR includes Free Agency). Projected Wins Added looks at players in the draft who can start for the new team to determine impact based on PM's rookie ratings (read more here). If team has not drafted a player who can start, it will not have any Proj. Wins Added.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
