Ohhh... I, for one, have been waiting for a thing like this for a long time:
Both the NBA and NFL need more of 3D modeling-type stuff before their advanced metrics can be truly predictive.
In baseball, the public availability of Ultimate Zone Rating (UZR) has completely re-done how we evaluate players. I imagine a similar tool for the other sports would have the same effect.
