Take a visualized historical look at the players, the drills, and the history of the NFL Draft
Piscataway, NJ (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
The fate of over 1000 young men with dreams of making it big in the NFL is about to be decided. Players were given a chance to show their mettle, and now that the Scouting Combine is over, the upcoming NFL Draft will whittle that pool down to just 254 possible NFL entrants.
The 78th annual NFL Draft it set to begin on Thursday, April 25th and run through Saturday, April 27th at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. To celebrate the event, and possibly educate fans, InetSoft Technology has created an infographic to take a visualized historical look at the players, the drills, and the history of the NFL Draft, including how draft positions correlate with professional performance.
The number one takeaway from this infographic is that many of the top players come much later in the draft rounds, suggesting that top performers in college are seldom top performers in the NFL. Thirty percent of Pro Bowl starters were drafted in rounds four to seven; 14% of these players were undrafted entirely.
