One the defining elements of becoming a GRID player
GRIDScore

GRIDScore

A position-specific stat to help understand the impact of a player

The purpose of the position GRIDScore is to serve as general indicator of someone's ability at any given position. Scouts and coaches use this number as a basis for evaluating talent, but in many ways it's just a starting point. Through other skill assessments, in-person racing at showcases and Pro Days, and even athlete interviews, the scouts and coaches can get a feel for your fit on their teams. But it all starts with the GRIDScore...

Frequently Asked Questions

Some quick answers to crucial questions

Q. How is GRIDScore calculated?

A GRIDScore is a cumulative value on a scale of 0 to 100 to help communicate a GRID player or prospect's ability at his or her respective position. We take the results from specific tests, and run it through a formula to generate the score.

Q. Why should I get a GRIDScore?

Aside from it being a requirement of the combine process and necessary to become draft eligible, registering and tracking one's GRIDScore can help you see how you compare to the GRID community at large, including amateurs and professionals!

Q. How does GRIDScore impact my chances of being drafted?

While it is the only required score for becoming draft eligible, GRIDScore is just one of the indicators for coaches and scouts to get a sense of your ability. Similar to how baseball players don't get drafted strictly based on their batting average, there are other factors and ways to stand out.
