With five Crimson Tide players projected to go in the first round of tonight’s NFL Draft, the Fansided network is proud to debut DraftPulse.com.
DraftPulse is not your usual NFL Draft tracking tool. There are no expert opinions/panels; everything you see is based on popular opinion. That’s right, it’s all about listening to the masses. We are tracking all of the prospects in the 2012 Combine/Draft across multiple media. Every time a prospect is mentioned in context with an NFL team, a relationship is created. These relationships are the foundation of this tool, and is used for all of the outputs, especially so for the Mock Draft.
The Mock Draft takes all the NFL teams and the prospects most talked about and orders them from most to least. Then in true Draft fashion, each team picks based on their list. If the prospect has already been picked, the next best option is selected.
Additionally we are doing some sentiment analysis on every comment to generate a media reception indicator. We’re going to be following all the eligible Tide players, so you can follow along as the NFL Draft unfolds.
