Abstract [en]

American football is a well-known sport in America. In addition to the design and rules of the game and the surface it is played on, there are also other differences that are not directly visible. One difference noted in this study is how the teams in the game provide players. Each team has a board of directors together with the team's leadership and they will determine which players are most suitable for the team. These players are recruited to the team after graduating from a U.S. college. This makes it possible to recruit new and young players to the squad. If the team wants other types of new players, there is also an opportunity to replace one or more players. This is seen as a trading, where players are replaced with other players between the two teams. These two opportunities to recruit new players to the team are called drafting, which is a process of recruiting players.

This study focuses on the recruitment of players from college. In America, it is a system used to recruit both new and old players to their respective teams in the National Football League, NFL. This study evaluates and analyzes the factors based on how each team in the NFL recruits players from the U.S. college league (NCAA). The factors analyzed were for instance each individual player’s performance during the college league, such as age, passing touchdowns and tackles. By using logistic analysis, these factors could then be determined by analyzing the odds and its change for each player's performance based on their positions in the team. This study shows that in every way a positional player performs during the college league, there will be important factors that contribute to recruitment to the NFL.

Abstract [sv]

Amerikansk fotboll är en välkänd sport i Amerika. Förutom utformningen och reglerna av spelet och underlaget det spelas på, finns även en andra skillnader som inte är direkt synliga. En skillnad som påpekas i denna studie är hur lagen inom sporten skaffar an sig spelare. Varje lag har en styrelse som tillsammans med lagets ledarstab avgör vilka spelare som är mest passande för laget. Dessa spelare rekryteras till laget efter att ha tagit examen från ett amerikanskt college. Det gör de möjligt till att värva in nya och unga spelare till truppen. Om laget vill ha andra typer av nya spelare finns det även en möjlighet att byta ut någon eller några spelare. Detta ses som ett handelssystem, där spelare byts ut mot andra spelare lagen emellan. Dessa två möjligheter till att värva nya spelare till laget kallas för drafting, vilket är en process för att rekrytera spelare. Den här studien fokuserar på rekrytering av spelare från college. I Amerika är det ett system som används till att värva både nya och gamla spelare till respektive lag inom National Football League, NFL.

Denna studie utvärderar och analyser de faktorer som grundar sig till hur varje lag inom NFL, rekryterar spelare från den amerikanska college ligan (NCAA). Faktorerna som analyserades var varje individuell spelares prestationer under college ligan. Med hjälp av logistisk analys kunde dessa faktorer sedan bestämmas. Detta gjordes genom att analysera oddset och dess förändring för varje spelares prestationer. Denna studie kom fram till att på varje sätt en positions spelare presterar under college ligan, så finns det viktiga faktorer som bidrar till att dessa spelare rekryteras till NFL.
