As we wrote during the draft, teams targeted seniors in the early rounds at a significantly higher rate than in other recent drafts, now we can point out exactly how significant it was. In the previous four drafts from 2008-2011, an average of 30 college seniors were drafted in the first 10 rounds. This year that number nearly doubled to 57. From 2008-2011, the most seniors drafted in a single round was eight, which occurred in the ninth round in 2010. In rounds 7-10 of the 2012 draft, nine or more seniors were drafted in each of those rounds. The number of seniors drafted in rounds 8-10 of the 2012 draft surpasses or ties the total from every draft since 2008.
