*MJ Rating takes into account the superiority of an athlete’s 40yd time, age, and weight combined.
It is more significant for power sports like football, basketball, and lacrosse where fast, heavy athletes are superior.
MJ Rating = SUM(40yd*4)+(Age*3.1)-(Weight/5)
An overall lower number = better MJ rating.
The following attributes lead to a lower number: faster 40yd time, lower age, higher weight.
Two athletes are the same age and run the same 40yd time, but one weighs more. The heavier one gets a better MJ Rating.
One athlete is 9 years old, and one is 10. Weight and 40 yd time are the same for both. The 9 year old gets a better MJ Rating because he is younger.
Two athletes are the same age. One is slightly heavier than the other, but even so; the lighter one has a grossly faster 40yd time and is therefore assigned a higher MJ Rating.
