Re: Some pick 10 history

I have been looking for a site with trade history to it and have come up with nothing. But I remember hearing during the draft, that the #10 spot is one of the most traded picks in the draft. Any help out there?

Re: Some pick 10 history

Well, this isn't an exact fit - but it's a FANTASTIC article well worth reading. This guy has taken all the starters in the NFL and broken them down by position and draft order. He's done trend analysis and charted statistics based on the order of the picks.

In a nutshell - he tells you when and where to get value from a draft pick, cross-referenced by which position. He give analysis and trends, makes conclusions, and and backs them up with statistical fact.

Re: Some pick 10 history

With that said, I believe there are some draft strategy guidelines that can be gleaned from the data:

1) Address your needs at "Top-Heavy" positions first and foremost, particularly QB, DT, and T1.
2) Look for value at the "Normal Distribution" spots. Many of the best value picks come from guys at these positions who slide into rounds two through four.
3) Immensely talented safeties are rare, but you won’t have trouble finding a quality safety in rounds two through five. A talented RB like DeAngelo Williams is probably a better use of resources than someone like Donte Whitner if you’ve got a need for both.
4) Wait until at least the end of round one to fill a need at center. Nick Mangold is awfully talented, but not worth a top pick if you’ve got needs elsewhere.
5) Spend late-round picks and undrafted free agent bonuses to collect prospects on offensive line, one dimensional defensive tackles, fullbacks, and special teams. A few of these will work out, and allow you to use your more valuable resources elsewhere.

At the end of the day, every team has pretty much the same arsenal of resources with which to build their roster (although some may have a little more cash for signing bonuses than others). The teams which can manage to use those resources most economically will ultimately field the most talented teams. It’s not just about player evaluation; it’s also about knowing how and when to address your specific needs.

Explaining T1: OT

Generally the top guy mans the left side, but that is not always the case. The key is that you need at least one guy on the edge who can be left in one-on-one situations and not need help. Those guys are rare, and are pretty much always picked early. Below are histograms which break down the position into “T1�? and “T2�?. This is not a reference to Schwarzenegger films or high speed internet connections. T1 is the starter for each team who was drafted earliest. T2 is the starter drafted later.

I like it. nice find my lord

Re: Some pick 10 history

if the terminator is available at number #10 I say we take him, I bet he'd be a beast at DT.

Bundy with the post of the day. I say give Miami all of our draft picks for 10 years. Still, it might be hard to sign him away from California. LOL

Glad to be of service, I thought that one was worth sharing. Good breakdown.

Anyway, here's more of what you were asking for. It's got all draft trade history from 2002 to 2007. But it doesn't consolidate them onto one page, or provide any analysis. Regardless, it's got the details of every trade that occurred during the last 6 years.
