Cerrato out drafted Belichick - History Lesson #2 on Shanahan (cont.)


There have been a number of responses that suggest that a comparison of Shanahan to Ozzie Newsome and the folks up in New England would be a better way to evaluate. Asked and answered. Below you will find New England and Baltimore drafts from 2006 - 2008, which is the same period that Shanahan was drafting, in addition to the fact that you need 2-3 years to really evaluate a draft. 

Reminder:
The (+) by the names are guys who turned into legitimate NFL ball players. The (*) represents guys who are at least still in the NFL. 

Again...Bruce Allen drafting terrifies me (http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/fulldraft?teamId=4900&type=team)
