I thought Kirby Smart said one interesting thing at yesterday’s Pro Day presser. Evidently there are some things Georgia’s staff doesn’t share about players with the NFL. Or at least prefers not to.
On whether data and metrics such as GPS numbers are useful and whether those numbers are shared with NFL teams…
“They’re useful for us. We don’t typically share that information out, so unless they’re squeezing it out or something is leaking it, we don’t give that information out. We tend to share information that will only help our players. In some cases, it would help. In some cases, they may be consecutive practices in a row, so we don’t share all that out. It certainly helps us, because it tells us when we need to pick it up and when we need to cut back volume wise.”
I’m not really sure why that’s so hush hush, as Smart makes clear there’s context for how the numbers are generated. (Not to mention it sounds like sometimes they do release information, albeit reluctantly.) Anyone know why?
