Best Practices

  • Beautiful design that tells the story without the need for any instructions
  • Terrific background
  • Great fonts and logos that aid in the story
  • Using the official team colors for each team
  • Visually stunning!
  • Tells an amazing story of how 142/200 (71%) of the high school top 100 went undrafted.
  • Fun and engaging; I’m finding a new story every time I click on something.

Recommended Enhancements:

  • I’d like to be able togo backwards this too. For example, I would like to click on an NFL team and see where they got their players from.
  • I don’t care for the default Arial font, but that’s personal preference. I would use something like Helvetica Neue.
