In the 2012-13 NFL season, there were 170 concussions in total. Wide receivers sustained the most concussions out of any position, totaling a dizzying 29 concussions during the season.

Your graph follows logic. "In-space" collisions are frequently the most violent due to the velocity of those involved. I would have thought safeties suffered more than corners, who are often running alongside receivers and heavily involved in run stopping.

As for the corners, I meant "not" heavily involved...
