    Some draft stats tendencies last 25 years...

    Positions take in the 1st round:
    DE - 98 - 12.7%
    WR - 96 - 12.4%
    RB - 89 - 11.5%
    OT - 84 - 10.9%
    CB - 79 - 10.2%
    DT - 68 - 8.8%
    QB - 53 - 6.9%
    OLB - 50 - 6.5%
    ILB - 44 - 5.7%
    S - 41 - 5.3%
    OG - 31 - 4%
    TE - 27 - 3.5%
    FB - 2 - 0.3%
    K - 1 - 0.1%

    (Some things to consider, more teams have moved to the 3-4 the last few years thus changing pick priority for things like OLB.)

    Some team tendencies:

    The teams that drafted 1st round offense the most (% of their draft picks used):

    Detroit - 71.4%
    New York Giants - 64%
    Pittsburgh - 63%
    Chicago - 60%

    The teams that drafted 1st round defense the most (% of their draft picks used):

    Dallas - 70.8%
    San Diego - 63.6%
    Tennessee - 63.6%
    Cincinnati - 61.3%

    The teams that drafted 1st round lineman the most (% of their draft picks used):

    Philadelphia - 65.2%
    Minnesota - 56%
    Tampa Bay - 52.2%
    Kansas City - 52%

    Some teams preference for certain positions (1st round).

    Detroit and Kansas city have both chosen 5 OT's
    N.Y. Jets lead with most TE's taken with 4.
    Minnesota, the Jets and Tampa have taken 6 DE's
    Philly has taken the most DT's with 5

    I have this data (and actually all draft data for the last 25 years) on a spreadsheet so if anyone wants other stats from this let me know and I'll try an come up with it for you.

    woohoo! TEs!!


    Surprised to see WR rank #2, then not so surprised when i reflected on the matter. They do tend to clutter up the end of the first round alot, and often are the BPA.

    OH OH I'VE GOT ONE!!!!

    No one drafts their #3 WR in the first round after giving up two picks for a young veteran with #1 ability.

  4. #4
    Haha TE....

    If left up to certain members on this forum, we'd have 5 in that department, and wouldn't have Sanchez or BE (i don't think we trade for bray if we didn't have a future potential franchise QB)
