    Default How many hits today for an overall draft success?

    If we go on the assumption the first 3 picks will develop into starters ( by no means a certainty) How many of the 10 picks today have to pan out as starters? If we only hit on 20%, that's two starters, given a total of 5 for the draft. Seems reasonable and I would think that would make this an extrememly successful draft. Anyone know what the league average is for starters per team per draft class?

    I do not know, but I am sure its not five. If we end up with five starters, i will be thrilled. I think four is more realistic, with some good depth, special teams players and TC competition.

    My sense is 5 would be out of the ordinary as well. I think it's more likely that we miss on one of the first three and hit a couple out of the last ten with 1 or 2 hanging on for depth. From some of the percentages thrown around for success in various rounds, that seems very possible. Which would be a huge departure from our past debacles.

    starters when? if they are established starters in four years....good by me.

    also...the NT is more likely to be a rotation player. Kerrigan will start. The Miami wideout will start.........the RBs will be rotation players as well. no idea where the latter round guys will end up.

    I am not as concerned about the latter picks starting as much as just having quality depth and good special teams guys. Starters are just a bonus with those late picks as far as I'm concerned.

    3 starters and see a handful of the later picks fill out depth and contribute on special teams.

    1. Ryan Kerrigan - will be a starter.

    2. Jarvis Jenkins - will be a starter.

    3. Leonard Hankerson - could start by late in the season and certainly by 2012.

    4. Roy Helu - watch out for this guy. Repeating the same words for Hankerson.

    5. DeJon Gomes - A project who will slip into nickel and dime coverages by 2012. By 2013, a regular contributor.

    6. Niles Paul - In time, he will become a ST stud and a reliable 4th receiver.

    7. Evan Royster - Another RB who will team with Torain, Helu, and Williams to form the best backfield in football by 2012. Will become a regular toward the end of this season.

    8. Aldrick Robinson - A project who could find a place on ST.

    9. Brandyn Thompson - Camp fodder and/or practice squad.

    10. Maurice Hurt - See No. 9.

    11. Markus White - Could become a reliable player in the rotation within two or three years.

    12. Chris Neild - See No. 11.

    Wow BB. You have done a lot more draft work than I have, so it encourages me to hear you so high on most of these guys. Just curious, why so high on White and Neild?
