Small TE drafting statistic

So due to time and energy constraints, I've outlined a basic (I repeat basic) outline of successful TEs since the 2002 draft.

Criteria?

Drafted since 2002 and has averaged at least 300 receiving yards a game.

I openly acknowledge that there are a,b,c,d..... aa,bb,cc, etc factors that can make this simple outline look like Poop, but if you feel like crushing it, please feel free =). Thought I do believe even if you add in said reliable factors it should not skew the data completely.

Data:

2002

1 Jeremy Shockey

4 Randy McMichael

2003

1 Dallas Clark

3 Jason Witten

3 Visanthe Shiancoe

2004

1 Kellen Winslow Jr.

1 Ben Watson

3 Chris Cooley

2005

1 Heath Miller

2006

1 Vernon Davis

1 Marcedes Lewis

2 Tony Scheffler

4 Owen Daniels

2007

1 Greg Olsen

2 Zach Miller

5 Brent Celek

2008

1 Dustin Keller

2 Fred Davis

3 Jermichael Finley

2009

1 Brandon Pettigrew

2010

1 Jermaine Gresham

2 Rob Gronkowski

3 Jimmy Graham

4 Aaron Hernandez

Analysis:

Breakdown of the 23 TEs

10 first rounders (44%)

4 second rounders (17%)

5 third rounders (22%)

3 fourth rounders (13%)

1 fifth rounder (4%)

Previously, I did make a statement on BBV that I rather draft a TE in the later rounds, which I consider amending.

Honorable Mentions:

Daniel Graham 2002 (1)

LJ Smith 2003 (2)

Kevin Boss 2007 (5)

John Carlson 2008 (2)

Jared Cook 2009 (3)

Ed Dickson 2010 (3)

Tony Moeaki 2010 (3)

Lance Kendricks 2011 (2)

Come to think of it I better send this to JR so the fans won't prematurely throw him on the blimp again...
