Five-star defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. is an imposing figure, standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 293 pounds. Beckner possesses an impressive physical stature but showed an equally powerful emotional side as he broke down in tears this morning before announcing his decision to sign with Missouri. Beckner hails from East St. Louis, Ill., a city that has been hit hard by poverty and crime. It’s awesome seeing how much this moment meant for Beckner and the family members that surrounded him. Good luck to the young man as he stays local.

LONDON – Lauri Love is said to have hacked thousands of computers in the US and elsewhere.A 28-year-old British man has been arrested on suspicion of hacking offences against the US Army, military and government.Lauri Love was arrested in Suffolk by the National Crime Agency under the Computer Misuse Act. He has been released on bail until February next year. Under the UK computer misuse act someone can be arrested for launching cyber attacks from within the UK against any country in the world.Andy Archibald, head of the NCA’s National Cyber Crime Unit said, “This arrest is the culmination of close joint working by the NCA, Police Scotland and our international partners.” “Cyber-criminals should be aware that no matter where in the world you commit cyber crime, even from remote places, you can and will be identified and held accountable for your actions,” he warned.Archibald went on to boast about the NCA’s global reach stating that they have “well developed law enforcement alliances globally and we will pursue and deal robustly with cyber-criminals”.According to the US indictment, Love is alleged to have hacked “thousands of computer systems in the United States and elsewhere”.US attorney Paul Fishman said, “As part of their alleged scheme, they stole military data and personal identifying information belonging to servicemen and women. Such conduct endangers the security of our country and is an affront to those who serve.”Love has not been charged in the UK but was indicted in the US after an international investigation by the US army’s criminal investigation command.Last year Gary Mckinnon was saved from extradition to the US only after the Home Secretary, Theresa May, intervened and withdrew an extradition order. Mckinnon was said to have committed the “biggest military computer hack of all time”, after he hacked 97 US military and NASA computers looking for what he says was suppression of free energy and a cover up of UFOs. Mckinnon fought a 10-year legal battle to try and stop the extradition.
The NFL draft starts Thursday night, and during the coverage you’ll probably hear about safe and risky picks. In some cases, the risk is specific to the player. Perhaps Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is a risk for his history of alleged off-the-field misconduct, while his counterpart at Oregon, Marcus Mariota, comes with worries that his stock was inflated by the Ducks’ spread offense. But some of the risk is also considered intrinsic to certain positions, while other positions carry a reputation for being particularly low-risk.The trouble, though, is that there’s no way to prove which positions consistently offer good returns on draft investment — at least not with football data in its current state. And in large part, that’s because we can’t really evaluate on player performance as accurately for the so-called non-skill positions.For instance, taking a quarterback (like Winston and Mariota) might seem like a hazardous bet to make early in the draft. But it’s possible that QBs only appear risky relative to other positions because we can more readily measure a quarterback’s performance statistically. In other words, when Ryan Leaf posts a 39.0 quarterback rating as a rookie, he’s easy to identify as a bust, but his linebacking equivalent might be harder to recognize.Here’s another example. You could use Pro-Football-Reference’s Approximate Value (AV) to estimate the odds that a player’s performance1We’re looking at the first five seasons of a player’s career. will live up to the expectations of where he was drafted, and break those numbers down by position:You’d find that the average offensive lineman2Weighted by the expected value of the pick, so that successful high picks are rewarded more — and highly-touted disappointments are more heavily penalized. meets or exceeds the median AV expected of his draft slot about 59 percent of the time — the NFL-wide average across all positions is, by definition, 50 percent — while the average receiver3Lumping together wide receivers and tight ends. provides positive value for his pick slot only 41 percent of the time. And quarterbacks wouldn’t be far behind receivers on the “risky” list, beating expectations at a rate of only 43 percent.But there’s another clear pattern in the AV data: The positions that seem like the riskiest picks are also the ones where we have the most data to differentiate between good and bad performances. Coincidence? Probably not.An offensive lineman’s AV is based solely on his team’s offensive performance, his own playing time and any accolades he receives (like Pro Bowl or All-Pro nods). So, short of being outright benched, there’s very little he could do to distinguish himself negatively under the structure of the study above (or those like it). A skill-position player struggling to meet expectations, on the other hand, can be identified via his inferior yardage, touchdowns, turnovers and the like. (To the extent that those metrics are even good descriptors of player performance.)It’s similar to the phenomenon that causes linemen to boast a far higher Pro Bowl “retention rate” than other offensive positions, particularly quarterbacks. The less information voters have to go on, the more they rely on a player’s priors (and perhaps rightly so). And the same can go for the draft, where certain positions can feel safer simply because we don’t have glaring, easily-quantifiable evidence to the contrary.The answer, of course, is more data. When Chase Stuart conducted a more granular (if anecdotal) look at offensive tackles using ProFootballFocus grades, for instance, he found what seems to be a healthy bust rate even for a position often tagged as one of the most reliable. Then again, PFF grades aren’t universally accepted as gospel, either; besides, they only go back to the 2007 season (as opposed to 1950 for AV).That’s why, for now at least, it may not be possible to truly say whether certain positions are more or less likely to live up to their draft-day expectations. It’s another unanswerable question to throw onto the pile of things about the NFL draft that we just don’t know.
