------------------

31 players out of the current 53 man roster (59%) was drafted (and UDFA) in the past 4 years. That's building through the draft, right?

Also, there are some notable players taken in the past 4 drafts that, although no longer on this team, who have made it onto other teams. I would think that if other teams want our "castoffs", it might indicate we aren't complete imbeciles at acquiring talent.
