A Quick and Dirty Look at the Draft Positions of our Starters


I was reflecting today on how many of our defensive starters are 1st or 2nd rounders and realized that the same cannot be said for our offense. Say what you will about it, that O-linemen are easier to find in later rounds, etc., but given how good our offense is, I think the results are somewhat interesting.

 

I included the starters as they were listed today at the game, with the exceptions that injured players on the 53 man roster who would normally be starting (Manning, Johnson) still get the nod in this lineup. Hit the jump for enlightenment (in all of its shitty MS Paint glory).

Treating an undrafted player as going in Round 8, the starting offense's average draft position is halfway through the 4th round (4.55), while the starting defense has an average position of the first three picks of the 2nd round (2.09).

 

Interesting, no?
