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average..My guess is we have deviated from the BPA and drafted for a need.I have also linked a study that is a bit outdated but still relevant.Who in this years 2nd round is a sure thing and should we draft them?
:Armanti Edwards (2011) - How can you draft a guy to play WR when you don't know if he has good hands or not?
Jimmy Clausen (2010) - I gave him a bad evaluation on draft day, got neg repped for it, then got to hear Hurney gush over him. Disaster.
Sherrod Martin (2009) - too soon to tell
packed in a deal to get Jeff Otah (2008) - jury is still out on Otah
Dwayne Jarrett (2007) - had all the physical tools to be a good possession reciever, but couldn't learn the playbook
Richard Marshall (2006) - good CB
Eric Shelton (2005) - disaster
Keary Colbert (2004) - knew he was a slow WR, gambled and lost
Bruce Nelson (2003) - injury problems
DeShaun Foster (2002) - very good RB
My thoughts in bold.
