I am struggling to see how this build up is going to work at this slow pace?

We need a QB, RT, OG, CB1, CB2, OLB, SS, DE. That's 7 holes to fill. Most drafts you are lucky if you get more than 2 full-time starters out of it. According to Draft Metrics(draftmetrics.com), statistics from 1993-2003 study:

  • 62% of the players drafted played at least three years in the NFL

  •  47% of the players drafted played at least five years in the NFL

  •  30% of the players drafted were NFL starters for at least three years

  •  21% of the players drafted were NFL starters for at least five years


    ALTHOUGH HERE'S THE KICKER PEOPLE:

    Using the starter definition described above (starter defined as a player who starts at least eight games), 14.5%, or one out of seven, of drafted players become starters in their rookie season.


    So there's my case. Stats to prove it and all. Anybody care to comment?
