ESPN analyzes the 1st Round Draft Picks for 3 Drafts, 2006-2008. Then Ranks how players SHOULD HAVE been drafted in Hind Sight. Quite interesting how data shows the draft is inexact picking as we all are aware. Hindsight's 20/20, but you see how good teams became good, by NOT screwing up, more than getting lucky.
Dolphins Results ... all 3 #1picks should have been drafted lower ... and I put the player ESPN Rates to be picked in our slot underneath.
