Draft Tools: Search by Position

Posted by Neil Paine on April 13, 2010

As part of our ongoing series on PFR's NFL Draft features, here's another draft tool you may not have seen -- you can also sort all-time draftees by the position they eventually played in the pros. Since the list of drafted players at any given position is pretty huge, we've decided to break up the history of the Draft into 3 eras: 1936-1959, 1960-1979, and 1980-2009. For each of these eras, you can select a position and see every drafted player whose primary NFL position is a match. Let's take an example: say you want to see every wide receiver selected in the Draft since 1980. At the corresponding page, you'll find the full list, alongside their pick #, college, and career stats like All-Pro/Pro Bowl selections, starts, Approximate Value, & traditional Passing/Rushing/Receiving totals. (Note: we apologize that 2009 starts & AV numbers have not been updated yet - we'll try to fix that soon.)

You can see all of the Drafted Players broken down by position here:
