Average Team NFL Draft Scores from 1997-2007

I had a request to post the performance of all the teams thru the 1997-2007 draft period I looked at yesterday so here is a table with the teams average score, median score, and best player picked using the points criteria detailed in the original article. 14 of the teams scored between a 280 and 320, which pretty much states that most of the league is pretty average at drafting. Dallas, Indianapolis, and Baltimore were the 3 teams to score over a 360 which is fueled by a number or really high scoring picks. The Jets rank 5 but the median is only 115, which likeley indicates some really good picks and a good deal of really bad ones. The Steelers are even worse with a median of just 84 on the 356 average score. The worst team in the league was the Lions with a 186 average the only team below a 200. Their median of 91 was 8th worst in the NFL. The Redskins with a median of 69 are getting little out of the draft.
