Except for David Anderson. And Zac Diles. And Troy Nolan. And Dorin Dickerson. And Derek Newton. If we'd have had a 7th rounder in 2012 he would have blown it. Fire his azz.
I brought up a few articles recently that show the percentage of draft picks in each round that became starter, contributor, place-holder, or nothing.
A 7th rounder usually is a "nothing" or a place-holder.
His chance of being a contributor is very low; of becoming a starter is very rare.
6th and 7th rounders have a little better of a chance to amount to something, but not much better.
You need 5 or 6 of those guys to find a starter; the Texans surpassed those figures rather handsomely.
They have been doing a good job on this part.
You have to give them that credit.
