    Packers, Steelers, and Patriots always replenish talent thru the draft really well, and now us too!

    I don't really care what our batting percentage was pre-Webster, he's got us on the right track.

    Very cool stuff. Looks like missing in the first and second and even third rounds is a huge deal. Which most of us realize but in chart form it is awesome.

    Yes, it is good to see in chart form. Even dropping from the first to the second is very significant.

    Shocking the difference between the success level of first rd picks vs 2nd rd. 62% drops down to 16%.Then another big drop off from the third to 4th rds.A surprise.

    lol I remember someone was arguing with me on here that the "first round is such a crapshoot" and they didn't want to pick higher in the draft. Clearly an idiot.

    So trade up in the first rd to get the player you want and get as many 5th rd picks as possible.

    That one player in the first rd often makes or breaks a draft.

    By these number the Vikings are the smartest team in the 2013 draft.
