Detroit Lions’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern The Lions were one of the worst teams in the NFL in the first decade of the new millennium that included a zero win season. The Lions struggles had a lot to do with a number of failures in the NFL Draft. The past five years have been a bit better for the Lions, but they have been a very up and down team. Detroit has had two playoff appearances but finished below .500 in the other three seasons. While the Lions more recent drafts have ... Read more >>

Denver Broncos’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern After only winning four games in 2010, the Broncos have bounced back with four consecutive playoff appearances. The past three years the Broncos have been one of the best teams in the NFL and Super Bowl contenders each year. While a lot of this has to do with the arrival of Peyton Manning, it is not the only reason.

Dallas Cowboys’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern Following an 11-4 finish in 2009, the Cowboys were a simply average team over the next four seasons including three finishes in a row at 8-8. However the Cowboys broke through with a 12-win season in 2014. The Cowboys' resurgence in 2014 had a lot to do with the contributions of young players drafted in the past five years. While the Cowboys have drafted some big name playmakers in the last five years, it is only fair to start with ... Read more >>

Cleveland Browns’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern Since football returned to Cleveland in 1999, the Browns have been one of the most disfunctional organizations in the NFL over that stretch. The new Cleveland Browns have only appeared in the playoffs one time and have only mustered up two winning seasons. Continual draft failure, especially at the quarterback position, is one of the biggest reasons the Browns have been so bad for so long. Although the Browns have drafted some solid ... Read more >>

Chicago Bears’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern Since their appearance in 2010 NFC Championship Games, the Bears have pretty much been a trainwreck. Last season the Bears registered their lowest win total since 2004. Several of the problems can be attributed to the lack of success they have had in the draft in recent years. Although they have not had many selections over the past five years, a majority of the picks have not made a big impact. Only two players remain on the team from ... Read more >>

Buffalo Bills’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern The Buffalo Bills have been one of the worst teams in the NFL the past 15 years and currently have the longest playoff drought in the NFL. This drought can somewhat been attributed to their failures in the draft but things may finally start turning around for the franchise. The Bills recorded their first winning season since 2004; and with the nice young talent acquired over the past five drafts, the Bills are close to getting over the ... Read more >>

Baltimore Ravens’ 5-Year Draft Review

by Adam Fournier, Ourlads' Intern Since moving to Baltimore from Cleveland, the Ravens have been one of the premier teams in the AFC capturing two Super Bowl victories. The Ravens built their team with a strong core that was acquired through the draft.
