    Felt like I was polluting the Draft Contest Thread (http://sonsofsamhorn.net/index.php?threads/the-new-new-2017-draft-contest.18887/#post-2215329) and wanted a place to discuss this year's draft. I know the Patriots don't pick until the 3rd round, and I don't really expect the Patriots to trade Butler or Garoppolo, but felt like we needed a place to discuss the draft.

    James Conner wrote a letter to NFL GMs in the Players Tribune. I'm a little bit surprised the Players Tribune published such an article because it's basically an advertisement for himself, but whatever, I like the guy and hope he has a successful career.

    This is an interesting article from a Chiefs website (2015 no less) breaking down success rate for draft picks by position and round. Not sure how accurate the numbers are but it seems that the Patriots areas of need match up with their remaining picks.

    3rd Round - OL (40%) TE (39%) LB (34%) DL (27%) WR (25%) DB (24%) QB (17%) RB (16%)

    4th Round - DL (37%) TE (33%) OL (29%) LB (16%) WR(12%) DB (11%) RB (11%) QB (8%)

    5th Round - TE (32%) DB (17%) WR (16%) OL (16%) DL (13%) RB (9%) LB (4%) QB (0%)

    6th Round - TE (26%) OL (16%) DL (13%) WR (9%) DB (8%) RB (6%) LB (5%) QB (0%)

    7th Round - DB (11%) OL (9%) QB (6%) WR (5%) DL (3%) LB (2%) RB (0%) TE (0%)
