Based off of the 2012-2014 pro bowls, these are the numbers of where each player was drafted and who played in the game (180 players). No surprise by the first round, but a shocking 12% of the pro bowl players weren't even drafted out of college. Even more surprising is that 37% of the players were in rounds 3-7.

Its interesting that the number of undrafted players 12% (considered cast-aways by the NFL) equal that of the "choice" second rounders. 12%

Such a valid point! This is good news for all of the college athletes who think that their dreams are crushed when they don't get drafted.

It is very shocking that 37% of the players were in rounds 3-7. It is also very interesting to see that 12% weren't drafted. I also really like the use of a pie chart to display this information.

Based of this graph it is shocking that 12% of the pro bowlers in the NFL are people who were undrafted. Although 51% of the pro bowlers came in the first round it shows you that the NFL Draft has many flaws. Half the leagues pro bowlers were not selected in the first round in the draft, which is shocking.
