Have you ever heard of the Lewin Career Forecast System?

The seven variables invovled in the system.
1.Career college games started
2.Career completion rate. Because of recent rises in completion rate across college football, this is a logarithmic variable, so that as a quarterback's completion percentage goes down, the penalty for low completion percentage gets gradually larger.
3.Difference between the quarterback's BMI and 28.0. This creates a small penalty for quarterbacks who don't exactly conform to the "ideal quarterback size."
4.For quarterbacks who come out as seniors, the difference in NCAA passer rating between their junior and senior seasons. (For quarterbacks who come out as juniors or redshirt sophomores, this variable is always 5.0, which is the average increase for the seniors in our data set.)
5.A binary variable that penalizes quarterbacks who don't play for a team in a BCS-qualifying conference.
6.Run-pass ratio in the quarterback's final college season.
7.Total rushing yards in the quarterback's final college season.
This the link to the 2012 one....basically said Robert Griffin and Andrew Luck was the best. but claim they also hit the nail on Russell Wilson, but wasn't sure about it. Also claimed that Cam Newton was an exception to the rule.(well of course he is.....he's NEO. lol)
Now this ia the new one for 2013......claims GENO SMITH and LANDRY JONES will be the best QB"S out this draft.
So do you buy into this system or do you sell it off?

If you guys are on football's future you've probably seen me defend Cam against the d-bags that still think Cam's not a franchise guy, splits a locker room, or a knucklehead. It drives me up a wall. I'm still not convinced RGIII will be a corner stone player, Cam's showed way more in my opinion.

I confused him with Colt McCoy.
