More on the 48 offensive starts the Redskins got in 2011 from players they drafted

Earlier this morning, I noted an article from Rich Tandler of CSN Washington, which listed the number of starts the Skins got last year on offense from players they drafted.  The number was 48, which sounded absurdly low.  So just out of curiosity, I wanted to see how that compared with the rest of the NFC East.  As I suspected, the Skins’ total of 48 starts was indeed very low in comparison:

Eagles Starts Giants Starts
Brent Celek 16 Eli Manning 16
Todd Herremans 16 David Diehl 16
LeSean McCoy 15 Hakeem Nicks 15
DeSean Jackson 15 Chris Snee 15
Jason Kelce 15 William Beatty 10
Jeremy Maclin 13 Mario Manningham 10
Danny Watkins 12 Ahmad Bradshaw 9
Jason Avant 7 Brandon Jabobs 6
Riley Cooper 3    
Clay Harbor 3    
King Dunlap 2    
Winston Justice 1    
Cowboys Starts Skins Starts
Doug Free 16 Fred Davis 12
Tyron Smith 16 Trent Williams 10
Jason Witten 16 Maurice Hurt 8
Dez Bryant 13 Roy Helu 5
Felix Jones 8 Chris Cooley 5
Martellus Bennett 7 Leonard Hankerson 2
DeMarco Murray 7 Erik Cook 2
John Phillips 7 Evan Royster 2
Bill Nagy 4 Niles Paul 2
Tashard Choice 1

  9. […] of starts each NFC East team got from players they drafted on offense.  The point was that the Redskins had a staggeringly low 48 starts from players they drafted.  Anyway, a number of you seemed interested in seeing how the defensive numbers shook out, so […]

    I wonder what the number is for players the eagles have drafted on defense… oh god.. It will probably be lower than 48

    1. Nah, bunch of regulars that were drafted by Philly: All the LBs, the safeties, Cole, Patt, etc. They’d probably be a little shy of a hundy.

      1. May as well just do that post too.

    Jus had to give OCC shouts. Love ya articles on blogging the boys. Jimmy Eli wasnt drafted by the giants so there number is 81.

  12. says:

    You do realize of course that Eli Manning was not drafted by the Giants. This may be a technicality, but so is the decision not to include UDFAs.

    1. Yeah, the “Eli wasn’t drafted by the Giants” thing has been broached in other posts. It’s kind of like last year when every post had to have the disclaimer of “assuming the lockout ends,” but to a lesser degree. I just don’t feel like adding it in every time, but it’s probably just easier to make the disclaimer than have to reply to some German guy who mentions it in the comment section 😉

        Don’t mind that German dude. He’s busy watching the European Championships.

        1. Octopus making predictions again?

          1. says:

            I may be mistaken, but I think the octopus died. Now, you cannot watch a show about soccer without somebody trying to push his latest pet as the 2012 oracle.

    2. Also, decision not to include UFA’s was Rich Tandler’s of CSN Wash, whose article I piggybacked off of, so there 😛

    I would include undrafted players, as they are part of the talent evaluation/ scouting departments. I know it makes a big impact for the Giants, as Cruz, Ballard, Hynoski, and the Bear all start a lot of games, but were undrafted.

    1. slandog says:

      I wouldn’t include the undrafted players. They have a choice in where they want to go. Sure the Giants may have have ended up with them but that doesn’t mean that other teams didn’t want them, they just chose the Giants thinking at that time it was the best situation for them.
