Shout-out to Xavier Cromartie… Winner of the Prestigious ‘Huddle Report’ Top 100 Contest of National Experts for 2021
With the 2021 NFL Draft behind us, we have to look back and honor a great performance (again) by our own Xavier Cromartie.
Xavier has been working and fighting to become known worldwide as the single best Mock Draft/NFL Draft expert on the planet for the past decade+. Something we started discussing was already true many years ago. A few years ago we earned the opportunity to compete on the world stage -- getting invited to participate in an NFL Draft expertise contest held annually by the website ‘The Huddle Report’.
The contest is simple…Submit the 100 players you believe will be drafted in the first 100 picks of the NFL Draft, and earn a point for each one you get correct. Sounds simple enough, but there is a lot of work that goes into that. You have to have the understanding of the prospects, the NFL Draft history and recent trends, and have the contacts and sources to put the best list together.
It’s NOT a contest for ‘the fans’. This is a contest of the top NFL Draft people in the industry -- past and current participants such as Mel Kiper, Mike Mayock, Daniel Jeremiah, Bob McGinn, Todd McShay, Lance Zierlein are some of the notable names involved.
And I can proudly say, since Xavier/College Football Metrics have joined the contest a few years ago -- we’ve whooped all the big names, year-after-year.
In 2021, Xavier Cromartie won the entire contest (a co-win with NFL Draft Shark) again...Xavier’s second title in the past five years. The only two-time winner in the past five years.
I wanted to share this great news and send a big congratulations to Mr. Xavier Cromartie, 2021 Top 100 Draft Board Huddle Report Champion -- the best, most tapped in, most studied NFL Draft/Mock Draft expert walking the planet.
Xavier also is ranked #2 in the running five-year average of scoring in that top 100 contest...a whisker away from the #1 spot. Congrats to the Draft Ace’ website for their hold of that #1 spot. They’ve been formidable competition the past few years...that we expect to pass in 2022!
Xavier also holds the single highest score ever achieved in this contest’s history -- his 2017 win with 91 out of 100 correct calls still stands as the 4-minute-mile achievement of breaking past 90 for the first and only time anyone has done it. The second most in history is 89...which Xavier hit with his 2021 victory.
In the lesser of ‘the huddle’s’ two contests, a 1st-round accuracy contest...Xavier finished 3rd overall in 2021, thus moving him to #7 overall in the 5-year average board...give him another year or two and he’ll be at the top of that board as well.
A great year of scouting at CFM and by Xavier Cromartie in 2021!
