Post Trading down vs. trading up

Quote:
The 3 most successful NFL teams over the last 3 seasons are the Seahawks, Patriots and Broncos. Each team has traded down at least twice as often as they traded up in the past 5 drafts.

Four of the 5 least successful NFL teams over the last 3 seasons are the Jaguars, Buccaneers, Titans and Browns. Combined, they traded up 28 times and down only 6 times over the last 5 drafts! That’s 6 trades up to 1 down on average, for 5 consecutive years.

courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information:

Half of the quarterbacks taken in the second and third rounds between 2011 and 2014 are projected starters in 2015. It's a list that includes Seattle's Russell Wilson, San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick and the Rams' Nick Foles, among others.

Since 2011, quarterbacks taken in the second or third rounds have combined for a better record, total QBR and more than double the playoff wins than first rounders taken in that span.

Each of the past three Super Bowls has featured a starting quarterback taken in the second or third round.
