    Over the last 5 years, Dolphins ranked number 2 in drafting.

    Well this should be a fun conversation.

    http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...-drafting.html

    The biggest obstacle in doing an objective analysis is to select the metrics that do the best job of measuring performances. DRAFTMETRICS decided to use a weighted combination of four measures to measure each teamís draft success.

    ē Total number of games started
    THE MEASURE: The number of games started by each player drafted in his NFL career
    PRO: Simplest measure to understand
    CON: Earlier years are weighted more heavily than later years because a 2003 draftee has the opportunity to start more games than a player drafted in 2012

    ē Number of players active for the 2012 season
    THE MEASURE: The number of players drafted that were active for the 2012 NFL season; players who missed the entire season due to injury are NOT counted
    PRO: Measures the depth of a draft class
    CON: Gives more emphasis to later years (players are more likely to still be active)


    ē Average share of annual starts
    THE MEASURE: This is calculated by averaging each teamís percentage share of total
    annual starts over the study period
    -For example, the Bears 2003 draft class started 520 games, representing 5.8% of the 9040 total starts by the 2003 draft. This calculation was repeated for each team in each draft year and the results were then averaged for each team
    PRO: All years are evenly weighted
    CON: Itís a pretty geeky metric


    ē Pro Bowl
    THE MEASURE: The number of drafted players who were selected for the Pro Bowl as
    original selections; injury and other replacements donít count
    PRO: Gives credit for drafting the best players
    CON: Tends to be weighted in favor earlier years as those players have more
    opportunities to be selected
    "I didn't feel like we had to score," Tannehill said. "I had the mindset we were going to score."

    I guess this puts a monkey wrench in the narrative of most of the fire Ireland experts here...I have always stated that Ireland has drafted well when it was HIS drafts. This more than proves it. Now those good drafts must turn into wins over the course of next two - three years...

    Misleading. Just because a player starts doesn't make him good. It's not successful unless you're winning games.

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    misleading statement is misleading. Are you actually trying to shoot this down by penalizing Ireland/parcells for drafting guys who did start for us? Isn't that the whole point of the draft is to draft players who can start for you?

    Seriously? Is this a real post? Starting for an NFL team, something only 264 people per year in the entire world get to say, doesn't make him good? Rationality has left this forum...

    I'm not penelazing them for drafting players... I'm penelazing them for not winning games. Shouldn't the 2nd best drafting team win games?
