That may be the case, but I can't imagine there are any NFL teams with nothing but 1st - 3rd round draft picks starting on both sides of the ball. I'm just throwing this out there, but I feel like every team has at least 2 or more 4th rounders & later on both sides of the ball.
We've got OD, Newton, Brooks, Myers, & Schaub (more or less) that were orginally 4th or later picks on offense.
Defensively we've got Sharpton (if he wins the battle with 6th rounder Mays).... well... we're stacked defensively. That can't be the norm.
