The folks over at Football Outsiders put together a whole host of statistics as we've seen over the last few weeks. One thing they do with the statistics is determine the odds of a given team getting into the playoffs. On the flip side of that, they also provide odds for each team getting the #1 pick in the draft and also getting a top 3 pick. Thanks to rdub49erfn for pointing it out. Given our interest in the Carolina Panthers draft choice, it seems like a good idea to post the Panthers odds each week. I just found out about this a couple days ago but going forward we'll post this the day after they're posted at FO.
For this week, FO calculate that the Carolina Panthers have a 4.1% chance of finishing with the #1 draft pick and a 17.7% chance of a top 3 draft pick. They also have a .2% chance of making the playoffs, so we gotta like that.
