    Reflective our position of drafting or NFL wisdom, if money were an indicator the Browns would not have needed Antonio Brown..

    Humongous differences between the biggest spenders and the NEP..

    Both charts are provided by Tucker Boynton and from Twitter..

    Then how much we have spent per round since '09

    Great data. Thanks.
    The Jetes have spent 2.7x more than the Pats on first rounders in that period and the Jills 2.3x. I wonder how that worked out for them? :)

    Sam Bradford's 2010 rookie (#1) contract by itself tops NE's total expenditure during this 10 year period.
    Bradford ....$78 mill
    NE...............$70 mill


    Draft #31 or #32 most every year
    Massage the rules a bit (pun intended) / lose #1's
    Trade out of the 1st round

    Standard Operating Procedure in NE
    or
    Kraft is cheap and saves his money for custom booster seats and mid morning delights

    ...or they pretty much always draft in the 30s therefore don't need to shell out big time signing bonus money.

    Interesting data that does correlate the best teams spend less while the worst teams spend more, my question would be what do those numbers look like if Brady, or AB as another example, were a first round pick instead of a sixth? I am sure it helps when the player you spend 15% of the cap on isn’t a first rounder, or put another way finding superstars later in the draft is great. I know great teams draft well, a shocking revelation:rolleyes:. Also add in the 2 firsts stolen and I bet the gap gets a lot smaller.

    Does Gilmore's contract of 50 to 60 million get included into that 70 million figure in that graphic? or is it excluded because he got drafted in the first round by another team? The Patriots home grown first round talent has only Hightower and Mccourty in their second contracts (I may be missing others).

    I don't think this says that much about our spending decisions and maybe anyone else's.

    Of course the worst teams are going to spend more than others on #1 picks, since they have better picks and a higher $ slot. It's not saying "look the Patriots are good because they don't spend crazy money on first round picks, unlike all those other teams".

    Also we didn't draft a first round pick in four different drafts since 2009, although there were two years we drafted two players.

    The only thing this may say is that we rarely give first round picks big second contracts.

    Any differences in later rounds is just noise, except maybe round 2, since we seem to stockpile those (and Gronk throws things off a bit).

    I think a better graphic would be total spending on 1st round picks since 2011.

    The old salary formula for top picks skews the data.

    also seems it only accounts for the first contract, and no FA contracts of previous 1st rd picks

    Bert Breer made an interesting point today that the reason why the Jets, Colts etc. have so many salary cap dollars to spend.. is because of their failures in the draft, no one needed to "get paid", which is interesting when you think about it in the big scheme of things. As bad as BB is made out to be at drafting, he has done very well considering where the Pats pick from..

    The consistent disdain that the Patriot organization shows for the draft's fifth round is one of the fun little details of following the team.
