Parcells at the Bat

Here is Bill Parcells' drafting record on day one, taking into account all his New England picks ('93-96), New York Jets picks ('97-'00) and Cowboys picks ('03-'04). Players who became NFL starters are counted as hits. Those who did not are misses. Looking at Parcells' first round track record, I'm inclined to keep both picks this Saturday.

Round One
Picks -- 10, Hits -- 10, Average -- 100%

By position: 2 QBs, 3 DEs, 2 CBs, 1 LB, 1 WR, 1 TE

Notes: Every one of these ten players -- Drew Bledsoe, Chad Pennington, Willie McGinest, John Abraham, Shawn Ellis, Ty Law, Terrence Newman, James Farrior, Terry Glenn and Anthony Becht -- is still starting in the league.

Round Two

Picks -- 13, Hits -- 9, Average -- 69%

By position: 3 OG, 2 LB, 2 WR, 1 OT, 1 RB, 1 C, 1 DT, 1 DE, 1 SS

Notes: Parcells best positions have been guard -- Randy Thomas, Todd Rucci, David Loverne -- and linebacker -- Ted Johnson and Chris Slade. His biggest misses were d-linemen -- Chris Terry and Dorian Boose -- and the wide receiver Kevin Lee. His best picks were SS Lawyer Milloy and RB Julius Jones.

Round Three

Picks -- 10, Hits -- 6, Average -- 60% (Stephen Peterman is not included, since he missed the season with a preseason ACL tear.)

By position: 2 WR, 2 FS, 1 NT, 1 C, 1 RB, 1 CB, 1 LB, 1 TE

Notes: It's boom or bust. The booms, however, are some of Parcells' best selections ever -- Curtis Martin, Tedy Bruschi, Jason Witten and Laveranues Coles.
