Podcast Episode 20 - Jeff Ohlmann

Jeffrey Ohlmann, Associate Professor at the University of Iowa's Tippie College of Business, joins Dave this week to talk about the NFL draft, the sports analytics class he teaches, and his upcoming panel discussion at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics conference. Professor Ohlmann discusses his research on optimal strategies for the NFL draft and explains how teams must strategize with imperfect player data and knowledge of the draft strategies of other teams. He also discusses how NFL franchises implement different strategies in the draft, and how combinations of NFL combine measurements may be more useful than any one metric.

Professor Ohlmann also describes how he created a sports analytics class for undergraduates, and provides some examples of the coursework. He and Dave end the episode with a look towards the upcoming MIT Sloan Sports Analytics conference, how Professor Ohlmann prepared for his panel, and what he's most looking forward to in Boston.
