"Anyone wondering what all the fuss about the NFL draft is only has to take a look at players named to this year's Pro Bowl teams. Granted, the Pro Bowl voting isn't 100% science with players reputations sometimes counting as much, if not more, that actual on-field production. Still, the Pro Bowl is a reasonably accurate barometer of who the best players in the league are at this time. And what that barometer tells us is that just about all the top players in the league were indeed drafted and that most (90%) came to their teams as premium (first day) picks." http://www.gbnreport.com/probowl.htm It's even more dramatic with defensive playmakers, where 97.1 % of this year's Pro Bowl defensive players were drafted on the first day.
