Why Are We So Bad With Our 2Nd Round Picks?

38 posts in this topic

The average bust rate is 50% in the 2nd round in the NFL while ours is about 80% unless you want to include Marshall and Martin as a success then we are about average..My guess is we have deviated from the BPA and drafted for a need.I have also linked a study that is a bit outdated but still relevant.Who in this years 2nd round is a sure thing and should we draft them?

because they are the highest picks hurney is willing to make major gambles with. he is very good in the first round.

fwiw clausen made sense as a pick. sherrod martin looked like a sure thing and only started to nosedive last year. dwayne jarrett would've been snatched up by somebody else, as he was highly touted nearly unanimously as an excellent choice. marshall was effective for us for years.

At some point you have to question due diligence but I tend to agree with csx, bad luck.

Its probably cause we put more time in the first pick and tbh our 1st Rounders are safe picks. Its why we don't have many impact players.

Interesting that Hurney just said that the reason they have been more successful with the 1st over the 2nd that they stuck to the drafting philosophy of Best player available.

The Armanti trade was seriously stupid though. Choosing him wasn't a bad thing, but he could've been a 4th/5th round pick.

I agree

look at the Ravens 2nd rounders over the past few years, and consider that all of these were toward the very end of the 2nd. All of them after our selections I believe.

2011. Torrey Smith

2010. Terrence Cody

2009. Paul Kruger

2008. Ray Rice

    • My question is whether we're sold enough on him to trade up with Jacksonville to ensure we get him. What would that take? I'd offer them our late 2nd rounder that we got from the Pats, take it or leave it. No way they trade down just for our 3rd round comp. pick and no way Gettleman gives up our original 2nd rounder. I maintain that the best case scenario for the Panthers is for at least 1 QB to go in the top-6, either to the 49ers or Jets. Jacksonville could opt for Solomon Thomas or Jonathan Allen over Fournette, but not likely anyone else other than Garrett, who is going 1st overall without a doubt. Would also be helpful for the Titans to go safety over corner, leaving the Jets with the option to take Lattimore. 1. CLE: Myles Garrett
      2. SF: Mitchell Trubisky
      3. CHI: Jonathan Allen
      4. JAX: Solomon Thomas
      5. TEN: Malik Hooker
      6. NYJ: Marshon Lattimore
      7. SD: Jamal Adams
      8. CAR: Leonard Fournette
