Podcast: Cynthia Frelund on football analytics, NFL linemen

On this episode of The Football Analytics Show, I talk with Cynthia Frelund, the NFL Network’s analytics expert. She has also worked on analytics for the NFL league office and ESPN.

Among other topics, we discuss:

  • her large sample size video study of NFL linemen
  • the lineman from UTEP to look out for in the draft
  • the real problem with the Browns, and what they’ll do in the 2018 draft
  • Next Gen data, and the 2018 project Cynthia is working on
  • the type of NFL coaches least likely to adopt analytics

Cynthia not only does quality work but also brings energy and excitement to football analytics.

    Thanks for doing this podcast, both Ed and Cynthia. I’m actually pursuing a Data Science immersive program in Sept and this interview was very aptly timed for me. Thanks so much for doing it!

    My good Doctor, thanks for all you do but I clicked on the play button several times and it appears not to be functioning – tried in both IE and Chrome – again thanks for the education/enlightenment
