NFL Draft 08: First Round Analysis

Monday, April 28, 2008

Alright so this year's draft was pretty entertaining so let's start with some little tidbits...first the top 10.

  • There was one offensive tackle taken(Jake Long), Three defensive ends(Chris Long, Vernon Gholston, Derrick Harvey), two defensive tackles(Glenn Dorsey, Sedrick Ellis), two linebackers(Keith Rivers, Jerod Mayo), one quarterback (Ryan) and one running back(Darren McFadden). That makes for 3 offensive and 7 defensive players.
  • Out of the Top 10 USC was the only school with more than one pick(Sedrick Ellis, Keith Rivers)
  • The Pac 10, Big 10, and ACC each had two picks in the top ten, while the SEC had four. The Big East and Big 12 had no picks in the top 10.
  • Racist fact: 30 percent of the top 10 players drafted are white. 100 percent of the top three are white. haha
