2016 NFL Draft Class

Jared Goff.PNG

The 2016 NFL Draft was loaded with such elite athletes as Joey Bosa (8.92), Ezekiel Elliott (8.66), and Jalen Ramsey (9.83), and that was just in the top 5. Each found a level of success commensurate with their draft position and athletic ability in their rookie campaign. They weren’t the only ones, as many would follow suit.

Round Above 5.00 Below 5.00 Percent above
2016 1 26 3 90%
2016 2 18 9 67%
2016 3 25 5 83%
2016 4 32 7 82%
2016 5 28 8 78%
2016 6 31 11 74%
2016 7 21 9 70%

As you can see in the table above, team’s valued athleticism in every single round, though some more than other. As usual, the first round was full of the best athletes as only 3 of the 29 players who qualified for RAS rated below 5.00 at the time of the 2016 draft. Of those three, only DeForest Buckner found any level of success with Laquon Treadwell and Vernon Butler both struggling to make an impact on their respective teams.
