The following are the notable records that 2019 is almost certain not to break:
17 – Most number of quarterbacks taken in a seven-round draft (2004)
19 – Most first-round trades (2012)
That is a huge number.
19 – Most offensive players taken in first round (2009, 2004, 1968)
I cannot see less than 17 defensive players going in round one. Let alone 14.
6 – Consecutive offensive players to start the first round (1999)
Defense is too heavy here.
6 – Most players taken in first round from one school (2004, Miami)
The breadth of schools with quality prospects at this point seems to overshadow the depth of any one program.
6 – Most quarterbacks taken in the first round (1983)
I get that quarterbacks are important. But this one has no shot this year.
