Comparative information and Decision Making

There is a sequence of events that have been discussed on HH that have not quite been framed as follows:
1) First players get scouted by independent professional scouts as well as teams personnel scouting staffs.

2) Secondly, the NFL draft occurs and risks are taken effecting future success.

3) The rookies then play in a seasons games if they have demonstrated sufficient talent. 

Other things effect these rookies playing time, i.e., experienced players at the same positions.  I am posting information on the 2009 first round draft picks in these 3 categories just to see how it plays out.  It may be more significant to see have these draft picks do in their 2nd season.  The 2008 draft picks can have similar information.
