It’s been three years since the 2010 NFL draft, meaning teams have had time to see the results of their picks.
The 2011 and 2012 drafts are new enough that a player’s future is in no way done in by a rough start. But if a first-round pick from ’10 still hasn’t gotten on track, he might never live up to his potential.
This draft was one of the weaker ones in recent memory. Just two quarterbacks were taken in the top 32 picks, and it’s safe to say neither team has gotten the production they hoped for from their signal-caller.
The rest of the draft has produced up-and-down results. But six of the top 10 picks have already made the Pro Bowl, and Joe Haden is well on his way to being the seventh.
That’s good, even if the level of dominance from the best players isn’t as high as 2011 or 2012.
