Evaluate scouting reports and compare player traits visually

Any successful sports franchise needs to be good at identifying valuable players. As sports analytics diversify, the difficulty stems from not a dearth but an overabundance of data.

Tableau offers a solution: Shrink your performance review time by transforming large volumes of data into easily understood and constantly updated visualizations.

Tableau’s advanced interactive features enable the creation of dashboards that are designed for exploration and customization. For example, this dashboard shows the players at the yearly NFL Combine for top college football prospects that best combine speed and size. It is sortable based on position and year, and provides a scatter plot and a ranking of all the combine attendees in the particular metric you select. For an even deeper understanding, hover over the data points on the scatter plot or bar charts to see all the relevant statistics for that player.

Thank you to Matt Chambers for the visualization.
