2016 NFL Draft Data Set

Update: I’ve added the 2nd and 3rd rounds into the data set.

I’ve been on a mission to learn SQL and decided to create a data set of the 2016 NFL draft. The following are some insights I found by through querying:

  • The average first round draft pickĀ is 6′ 3″ and 243 pounds.
  • 7 players drafted were taller or equal to 6′ 6″.
  • There tallest player drafted was 6′ 7″ and the shortest player drafted was 5′ 10″.
  • Ohio State had the most players (5) drafted in the first round.
  • There were 14 offensive players and 17 defensive players drafted.
  • CB, OT, WR were the most positions drafted with 5 players going in the first round in each position group.

The data set can be found below. I’m still considering adding the 2nd and 3rd rounds to the data set.
