See Jenkins, AJ. The draft is a crapshoot everywhere, teams blow their first round picks on the regular.

It varies by position IMO.

I'm sure someone has taken the time to monitor the hit rates per position and round.

WR seems to always be a big gamble.

They say wait 3 years to judge a WR. So 2011:
1st round
AJ Green - hit
Julio Jones - hit
Jonathan Baldwin - miss
2nd round
Titus Young - miss
Torrey Smith - hit (pretty good for a 2nd rounder)
Greg Little - hit? Maybe if he had a good QB?
Randall Cobb - hit
3rd round
Austin Pettis - miss
Leonard Hankerson - miss
Vincent Brown - miss
Jerrel Jernigan - miss
4th round
Kris Durham - miss
Edmond Gates - miss
Greg Salas - miss
Cecil Shorts - hit
Tandon Doss - miss
5th round
Kealoha Piras - miss
Denarious Moore - hit for a 5th rounder
Jeremy Kerley hit for a 5th rounderNiles Paul - miss
6th round
Ryan Whalen - miss
Dwayne Harris - miss
Aldrick Robinson - miss
Ronald Johnson - miss
7th round
Scotty McKnight - miss
Stephen Burton - miss
David Ausberry - miss
DeMarco Sampson - miss
2010 WRs
1st roundDemaryius Thomas - hit
Dez Bryant - hit
2nd round
Arrellious Benn - miss
Golden Tate - hit
3rd Round
Damian Williams - miss
Brandon Lafell - borderline, hit?
Emmanuel Sanders - borderline, hit?
Jordan Shipley - miss
Eric Decker - hit
Andre Roberts - borderline, maybe a miss?
Armanti Edwards - miss
Taylor Price - miss
4th roundMardy Gilyard - miss
Mike Williams - hit
Marcus Easley - miss
Jacoby Ford - miss
5th roundDavid Reed - miss
Riley Cooper - hit
Kerry Meier - miss
6th roundCarlton Mitchell - miss
Dezmon Briscoe - miss
Antonio Brown - hit
David Gettis - miss
Kyle Willaims - miss
7th roundTerrence Austin - miss
Marc Mariani - hit as return specialist
Tim Toone - miss
Combined 2010/2011 Numbers:
1st round - 4 out of 5 hit
2nd round - 4 out of 6 hit
3rd round - 4 out of 12 hit
4th round - 2 out of 8 hit
5th round - 3 out of 7 hit
6th round - 1 out of 9 hit
7th round - 1 out of 7 hit

hmmm....interesting. So based on trends, you should expect 1st/2nd rounders to be hits. I though the percentages would be lower.

LOL!

OK -- anytime ANYONE gets upset about San Diego's "pronouncements" on this or that player, please copy/paste and stick this in his face.

This is called "missing the mark." And by a wide margin. A Buenos Aires sized miss.

So, according to your research, the draft is NOT always a crapshoot, not even close. At least, at WR.

We could spend a look at QB. I did this a long time ago and it says that basically you only can get a starting QB in the first or second round. Though, there even is a big spread between first and second round.

lol yeah, I came to the opposite conclusion I started with. Spending a high pick on WR should not be a gamble.

I'm still suffering from Rashuan Woods/AJ Jenkins syndrome

But how easliy we forget Crabtree was also a big success, just need him to stay healthy.

Why has a thread about Blaine Gabbert risen from the dead?
[ Edited by buck on Nov 23, 2013 at 11:15 AM ]
For all those that loved him coming out. Just got traded to us for a 6th. I actually don't mind it for a backup. Vet QB with starting experience, let Harbaugh see what he's got. And only for a 6th.
I wanted him at 7, not gonna lie.

With the right coaching and enough time, he could definitely develop into a Rodgers-type of QB (WCO skills, excellent mobility and vertical passing threat).

Then we can trade him for a 5th.
