A football junkie, Tyler Oberly has followed the game since five years old. Cutting out box scores and reviewing statistics off of playing cards as a kid, Oberly is now taking those statistical qualities and applying them to provide a unique perspective twenty years later.
Studying electrical engineering at the University of Toledo, Oberly began developing a statistical model to review NFL rosters for player and salary cap analysis. After performing business and risk analysis reports for the past five years in the industrial world, Oberly's model has evolved and integrated database science to reveal players’ and teams’ unique rankings; in turn, these rankings expose important patterns and anomalies in performance that are considerably less evident using conventional evaluative approaches.
Previously a contributing writer for NFL Draft Bible and College Football Insiders, Oberly has written football analytic reports for several teams in the NFL.
