    Decker and Killebrew still on the team. Out of 10 draft picks you have 2 with one of them being a starter.

    Then, add in all the UDFA you have a total of 21 opportunities, with only hitting on 2.

    That's just awful.

    Isn't Dahl still on the team. so wouldn't that be 3 out ten draft picks and 2 off them are starters. Since Dahl was drafted he has started 17 of the 35 games he was able to play. That is still a horrible ratio for a draft.

    2017 isn't much better outside of Galloday and Agnew, and if the 2020 draft is anything to go back, Agnew might not be on the team this year either. Though I do also think it says a lot about your draft when the 2nd best player in your class is a return specialist.

    You're right, missed that one!

    It makes me wonder what the average length of service a rookie has with their respective team after being drafted. 30% of our picks are still on the roster. Is that high, low, or average, when compared to the rest of the NFL?

    Well I took the time to do some research about whether or not the player was still with the team that drafted them. Below is the percentage of players that are still with the team that drafted them. It is coming up on 4 years since the draft so I am sure most of the players didn't perform well enough to warrant an extension. Which makes the argument that if you don't show something in the first 2 years you most likely already have one foot out the door from being replaced.


    New Orleans Saints 60%
    Atlanta Falcons 50%
    Dallas Cowboys 44%
    Philadelphia Eagles 38%
    Baltimore Ravens 36%
    Chicago Bears 33%
    Houston Texans 33%
    Los Angeles Rams 33%
    Kansas City Chiefs 33%
    Detroit Lions 30%
    Cincinnati Bengals 29%
    Green Bay Packers 29%
    Jacksonville Jaguars 29%
    Washington Redskins 29%
    Indianapolis Colts 25%
    Miami Dolphins 25%
    San Diego Chargers 25%
    Seattle Seahawks 20%
    Tennessee Titans 20%
    Arizona Cardinals 17%
    New York Giants 17%
    New York Jets 14%
    Pittsburgh Steelers 14%
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14%
    Denver Broncos 13%
    New England Patriots 11%
    San Francisco 49ers 9%
    Buffalo Bills 0%
    Carolina Panthers 0%
    Cleveland Browns 0%
    Minnesota Vikings 0%
    Oakland Raiders 0%

    League average is about 23% so compared to that number the Lions did well in the 2016 draft?

    Thanks. It definitely doesn't show the whole picture as it leaves out the talent of said players left on the roster. However, it's nice to see what teams can and cannot pick for the future. That's the whole point of the draft is to select players that are going to be there for the long haul. To see the Las Vegas Raiders at the very bottom 2 years in a row really tells you that our front office could be a lot worse....hahahha
