Looking at the NFC East drafts since 2010 - O.T.I.S.

One of our good buddies, XxTDxX, at cowboyszone.com has made an interesting assessment about the NFC East's draft picks since 2010. Comparing the teams (Giants, Eagles, Redskins and Cowboys) first and second round draft pick here it is the article: 

I have made a list of all the players in the NFC East who were drafted from 2010-2013 who are either starters or important role players on their respective teams. I did this purely because I was curious but what I found was pretty encouraging/surprising.

Players who I consider to be Impact/Well above average players are in bold

I also included a list of notable "Busts" (Either 1st or 2nd round picks who are not with the team or are not notable contributors to the team

New York Giants:

Jason Pierre Paul - Starter
Linval Joseph - Starter
Prince Amukamara - Starter
Jaicquan Williams - Starter
Jerrell Jernigan
David Wilson - Starter
Rueben Randle - Starter
Justin Pugh - Starter
Demontre Moore

Notable Busts: Marvin Austin

Philadelphia Eagles:

Riley Cooper - Starter
Clay Harbor
Alex Henery - Starter
Fletcher Cox - Starter
Brandon Boykin - Starter
Mychal Kendricks - Starter
Vinny Curry
Nick Foles - Starter
Bryce Brown
Lane Johnson - Starter
Bennie Logan
Earl Wolff - Starter

Notable Busts: Brandon Graham, Nate Allen, Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett

Washington Redskins:

Perry Riley - Starter
Ryan Kerrigan - Starter
Leonard Hankerson
Roy Helu
Dejon Gomes

Sean Lee - Starter
Tyron Smith - Starter
Bruce Carter - Starter
Demarco Murray - Starter
Dwayne Harris
Morris Claiborne - Starter
Tyrone Crawford
James Hanna
Travis Frederick - Starter
Terrance Williams - Starter
JJ Wilcox - Starter

Notable Busts: None

Final Results are

Giants: 9 Total, 6 Starters, 1 Well above average player , 1 Bust

Eagles: 12 Total, 8 Starters, 0 Well above average players, 4 Busts

Redskins: 11 Total, 7 Starters, 4 Well above average players, 1 Bust

Cowboys: 12 Total, 9 Starters, 3 Well above average players, 0 Busts

In my opinion the Cowboys have arguably had the best drafting in the NFC East since 2010. One could certainly make an argument for the Redskins but that also hinges on what becomes of RG3. I listed him in bold because of last year but the way things are going I'm not sure that will stay that way.

This also doesn't include undrafted contributors since 2010 which I am quite certain we have the most of (Barry Church, Dan Bailey, Lance Dunbar, Ronald Leary)

The Cowboys DO have the best Talent in the NFC East and have the best young talent as well. It's time that translates but as long as you keep losing every close game with a good opponent it will be difficult.

Thanks to XxTDxX of CowboysZone.com for this excellent analyst.
