The draft sure is not an exact science.

Durability concerns pushed Frank Gore to the third round in the 2004 NFL Draft, when San Francisco made him the 65th overall pick.

Today, he'll get the start against the 49ers and play in his 228th career game, the most by any RB in NFL history. Long live Frank Gore.

Holy crap. Gore is 37 years old. 3rd on the all time rushing list.

What's the nfl average for drafting starters, backups with starts, back-ups with playing time, developmental back-end of roster players, and practice squadders ... for each draft?

I'm guessing we're well above average

... after two games.

Troy Dye now a starter, for instance.

Might give us a good enough reason to cut Barr in the offseason.

Well above average in terms of the number (not quality) of draftees that got thrown at the roster / practice squad and stuck (for two games).

Which is all you can do since its way too early to assign quality or value to rookies after two games (with no OTAs or preseason no less).
