2006 NFL Draft Class

Mario Wiliams.PNG

A draft class that was just loaded to the brim with elite athletes at seemingly every position, the 2006 draft class showed off one of the biggest ‘freak’ athletes of all time in 1st overall pick Mario Williams. So stacked was this class with athletic talent that it wasn’t until the 17th overall pick, Chad Greenway (7.47) before a player was selected that wasn’t rated among the elite for RAS.

Round Above 5.00 Below 5.00 Percent above
2006 1 29 1 97%
2006 2 29 1 97%
2006 3 27 3 90%
2006 4 29 4 88%
2006 5 25 6 81%
2006 6 23 5 82%
2006 7 29 5 85%

There was only one player rated below 5 in the first round and only one in the second round (as mentioned, this class was brimming with talent. Tamba Hali was the first, who despite poor measurables has had an excellent pro career. Roman Harper was picked in the second round, and notched a couple pro bowls in his time before winning a Super Bowl with the Saints. More than 80% of draft picks in every round posted a RAS over 5.00 in 2006 which is just incredible.
