ESPN Analytics of Jimmy Garoppolo: Looks Good, But Too Little Data for Confidence He’s Above Average Quarterback

ESPN Analytics writer Brian Burke confirms Jimmy Garoppolo’s strong performance in two starts for the New England Patriots in 2016, but advises there’s not enough data to be certain he’s an above-average NFL Quarterback.

Garoppolo averaged 7.9 yards per attempt and posted an 88.7 QBR in 2016 –excellent figures. Garoppolo played well for two starts while Tom Brady was suspended. Therefore his underlying potential is more likely to be good than if he had been mediocre in the same short span, according to Burke. There’s probably credit due for performing well from the start with his first NFL starting performances.

Garoppolo with only 63 attempts over two starts, and a total of 94 attempts through his three seasons offers significant uncertainty. Burke reports it would take 500 attempts averaging 7.9 YPA before analysts could confidently say a quarterback is above average, and it would take about 1,000 attempts, or about two full seasons, before we realistically could be confident that Garoppolo has the talent that many hope he might have, or guess he might have.

Burke reports that there is even greater uncertainty when analyzing first-round draft picks, compared to analysis of Garoppolo’s performance so far.

There’s speculation that the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Brown, and San Francisco 49ers may be in a bidding war for Arlington Heights native Jimmy Garoppolo. Speculator’s are waiting to see what develops before the 2017 NFL Draft.

The 2017 NFL Draft at the 82nd annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises is scheduled from April 27-29, 2017 in Philadelphia.
