    That percentage table will now be added to the draft tools.

    I'll keep it between the Ouija and dart boards.

    LOL.
    I love that site.
    Typically only check it at home, however, I've been waiting for my mag from them.
    For some reason I let my subscription lapse.
    Had to renew, posted some stuff from thier "Free Rack" while I was there.

    Excellent site.

    Great Read

    "CONCLUSIONS

    It’s truly shocking that so much great talent is found in undrafted free agency. A lot of that talent doesn’t walk into rookie camp and take a two-deep spot right away. No, they become good because of coaching, hard-hat determination, and a drive to succeed. Nevertheless, udfas come at a much cheaper price than any pick before the 6th round – they need to be cultivated.

    What’s not shocking is the obvious need to find your cornerback, running back, tight end, and wide receiver talent in the first two rounds. For each of those positions, 1st and 2nd round were the rounds with the highest rate of two-deep talent over the last three NFL seasons: 47%, 50%, 37%, and 45% of the two-deep talent at each position, respectively, was acquired in the first two rounds. Those are sizeable numbers not to be ignored. Get talent at CB, RB, TE, and WR early or you’ll be waiting for them to develop into contributors. "

    This is why people saying we can replace CT with a mid-round draft pick are dead wrong. It is also why we shouldn't draft DT/OT early when BPA will probably be CB or WR.

    Of course, this is historical data. This year might buck past trends, or be a complete anomaly.

    LOL, that would have been funny wouldn't have it.....

    Problem is, I would have had to put some thought into something like that.
    My mind isn't that complex or doesn't work that way most of the time....Way to simple.

    ;D

    +1, that was funny, just gotta hope all the homework you put into building your draft board pays off. Good stuff Marr/Physio.
