-- The first 5 picks saw 3 offensive tackles and two defensive ends taken.
-- The first round saw only one quarterback, one tight end, and two wide receivers taken. There were no other offensive skill-position players taken.
-- The first RB taken was in the second round (first time this has happened since 1963). The top 50 picks saw only 2 RBs taken, and the first two rounds only saw 5 -- three of which came in the final five picks of the second round.
-- Draft stock meant apparently nothing this year. Geno Smith, projected to be a top-5 pick, didn't get taken until the second round. Matt Barkley was Mel Kiper, Jr's top overall prospect heading into the fall, and Barkley hardly made it into the top 100 draft picks -- he went 98th overall (Round 4, Pick 1).
-- Duke has had 11 total Draft picks since 1990, and yet had one more than Georgia Tech this year. (Tech has had 51 Draft picks in that window).
All this to say, it was a weird Draft. Don't get too caught up in our lack of picks -- they've still got a good shot to make it in the league.
Am I right, Tech fans? Was this a weird Draft, or am I just trying a little too hard to make myself feel better?
