    James, Nice work. As someone who has compiled similar data, I’m not sure everyone will appreciate the amount of effor that goes into such an undertaking.

    How did you treat players taken in the Supplemental draft? For example, Tony Hollings, RB from Georgia Tech, taken in the second round of the 2003 Supplemental draft by the Texans. Not that overlooking a few players is going to make any drastic shifts in the data, but in Holllings’ case it would erase the goose egg up on the board for GT in the 2003 draft.

  2. Patriots Draft Guru says:

    Patriots really haven’t had much luck from the ACC.
