In my last blog post, I used Minitab Statistical Software to try to determine whether Mel Kiper or Todd McShay is better at predicting the 1st round of the NFL draft. Just like you might need to decide between suppliers in a quality improvement situation, I needed to decide who to go with when I filled out my 2012 NFL Mock Draft Office Pool. Well, as it turns out there wasn't any statistical difference between the two, and the cost was exactly the same. So I just flipped a coin to decide who to go with, and it came up Kiper!
Now that the first round of this year's draft is complete, I can do some data analysis on his picks and see how accurate they were. Then I'll do the same with McShay and see if the coin made the right decision.
