pzummo Posted January 26, 2012 Share Posted January 26, 2012 There have been a lot of threads about Dimitroff's ability to draft players. I found a link that actually charts every single NFL franchise, their draft picks from 2009-2011 (which doesn't include our 2008 draft, arguably our best over his tenure), and how many of those players made and stayed with the team. These are not my opinions, I'm just posting the facts about how all of the teams stack up against each other. Here is the link and some highlights I noted. Feel free to provide your own comments/evaluation based on all of the facts presented, not just focusing on one or two picks by several different teams over the 3 year span. http://www.drafttek.com/ConsolidatedNFLDraft-stillWT.ASPJust so there's no misconception, the link defines success as to whether or not that player made the team and was still on the team by the time the 2011 season started. It does not rate the players drafted by draft position, but it does point out the completely whiffed draft picks by each team by noting which ones couldn't make or stay on the roster.The Atlanta Falcons rank second in the entire NFL. 95.2% of all of our draft picks were still on our roster at the beginning of 2011. Some notable teams that some have claimed much better at drafting than us... Green Bay had a respectable 79.2% success rate, although they completely whiffed on at least 5 picks. New England has whiffed on 11 players since Dimitroff left (66.7% success rate). New Orleans has whiffed on 4, 75% success. The Eagles whiffed on 10 guys, 68.8%. Steelers whiffed on 9 guys, 65.4%. Dallas was the 2nd worst in the entire NFL with a 63.3% (Rams were the worst drafters in the league). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
