2014 NFL Draft

Ten Years of NFL Draft Pick No. 21

[tps_header][/tps_header]

Roger Goodell NFL Draft

The Green Bay Packers will select at No. 21 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft on Thursday. They’ve been selecting in that range (early 20s or later) for a while now.

The No. 21 slot is their highest first-round pick since 2009, when the Packers got to pick at No. 9. The Packers have only had three higher selections than this year’s in the past 10 — 2006 (5), 2007 (16) and 2009.

Those picks netted A.J. Hawk, Justin Harrell and B.J. Raji, respectively. So, that pretty much illustrates that the Packers aren’t necessarily better off with a higher pick.

We’re talking about No. 21 though and we’re going to look at what other teams got out of that slot over the past 10 years. So maybe we can figure out if the Packers should expect anything.

Oddly, only five franchises have owned the No. 21 pick in the past 10 years — New England (3), Cincinnati (2), Cleveland (2), Jacksonville (2) and Atlanta (1). If you want even more useless statistical data, the Packers are only the second NFC team in 10 years to pick at No. 21.

Amazing! Bet Mel Kiper won’t give you that one!

We’re here to look at the players and their production though, so let’s get down to that.

    That is actually a pretty impressive list.

      Yeah, it really is. Damn.

    Agreed. I saw this list over the weekend, and it immediately struck me that basically every pick was a good player, with only Matt Jones being the obvious bust.

    Yeah, but would he have been at QB? A 6-6, 245 lb, 4.3 40 QB…Jesus H Christ

      Haha… Jones was probably discriminated against.

      He was too athletic to play QB. Sound familiar?

      However, being a blow-addict a franchise QB does not make.

    Here’s more useless info. The 21st position has produced a Pro Bowler 30% of the time in the last 20 years. That’s better than the 22nd position, which produced zero Pro Bowlers for 17 years straight. Vince Wolfork and Randy Moss are the two names that standout who were taken at the 21st position.
