Comparing Shanny's Draft Against the Best in the Business: How Has He Done?

So I have compared Shanny’s draft history over the last three years to that of the Steelers (a team who I at least think is the best, if not, one the best at evaluating talent in the draft) and the verdict is that it’s probably not as bad as many of us thought. Yes, there are some mistakes, missed opportunities, and it’s too soon to judge many of the players. And one could argue that the Steelers, always drafted lower, and had less of a need for fill holes, etc. In any event, below is a break down, let me know what think…How has Shanny done when compared to one of the best in the business?

Total number of picks (2010-12)

Redskins 27

Steelers 26

Number of picks (rds 1-3)

Redskins 6

Steelers 9

Number of picks (rds 4-5)

Redskins 7

Steelers 8

Number of picks (rds 6-7)

Redskins 14

Steelers 9

Number of picks still with the team

Redskins 21

Steelers 20

Number of Players on Current Roster *excludes PS and IR

Redskins 17

Steelers 16

Number of Starters

Redskins 6

Steelers 4

Note: I have used ESPN's depth chart here. They're maybe some debate on how accurate it is, but I wanted a 3rd party for consistancy. So for example, Hank is not listed as a starter (Garcon is)and Dwyer is not listed as a starter, even though he is getting the majority of the carries. In addition, I listed Rainey as a starter even though its is just as a KR, so take him out if you disagree.
