Post Dolphin Draft picks still on the roster (2009-2013)
I am going to keep these updated on our Phinfever Draft Central page.

This is pretty pitiful. White is still on the roster, gray is no longer with us.

No we know why Ireland was fired. I wonder how stack up to SB winning teams with the draft.

Seattle won so start there..... 9 of 22 starters were drafted since Carrol took over another 9 starters were aquired by him via FA or trade leaving 4 starters leftover from the previous regime....
I think Rich posted about the success rate of the draft and it was 50% or less after 4 years...

Quote:
Building the Seahawks
Coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider have constructed a team that finished 11-5 this season. Here's where the 22 starters came from:
The blue-chippers (5)

LT Russell Okung: Drafted in first round (No. 6 overall), 2010

S Earl Thomas: Drafted in first round (No. 14), 2010

LB Bobby Wagner: Drafted in second round (No. 47), 2012

QB Russell Wilson: Drafted in third round (No. 75), 2012

WR Golden Tate: Drafted in second round (No. 60), 2010

More bang for the buck (4)

CB Richard Sherman: Drafted in fifth round (No. 154), 2011

S Kam Chancellor: Drafted in fifth round (No. 133), 2010

LB K.J. Wright: Drafted in fourth round (No. 99), 2011

RG J.R. Sweezy: Drafted in seventh round (No. 225), 2012

Hidden gems (2)

CB Brandon Browner: Signed in 2011 after playing in Canada

DE Chris Clemons: Acquired in trade from Eagles, 2010

The leftover bin (4)

RB Marshawn Lynch: Acquired in trade from Bills, 2010

RT Breno Giacomini: Signed off Packers' practice squad, 2010

FB Michael Robinson: Signed in 2010 after 49ers released him

LG Paul McQuistan: Signed in 2011

Shopping list (3)

WR Sidney Rice: Signed as unrestricted free agent in 2011

TE Zach Miller: Signed as unrestricted free agent in 2011

DT Alan Branch: Signed as unrestricted free agent in 2011

The holdovers (4)

DE Red Bryant: Drafted by previous regime in 2008

DT Brandon Mebane: Drafted by previous regime in 2007

C Max Unger: Drafted by previous regime in 2009

LB Leroy Hill: Drafted by previous regime in 2005


So they ended up with 4 leftover draft picks, and used the draft and FA to build a championship team in 4 years...

In all fairness to the 09 and 10 draft, there are several picks that were on our roster until the last year or two and then lost through trade (Davis) or free agency. Still, we've lacked sufficient star power from Irelands drafts.

No way. He only caught 21 passes his rookie yr. He must have been a bust.

BTW, he followed that up with 35 his 2nd yr.
