While I was away last week, NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas offered an interesting take on draft pick retention.
Yasinskas reported Denver has kept just 48.6 percent of its picks since 2008, ranking them last in the league. Of the 37 draft picks Denver has selected in the past four drafts, 32 are still in the NFL. Yet, only 17 are in Denver.
In other AFC West news:
The Raiders announced their home preseason game against Detroit will be Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. and their preseason finale at Seattle will be Aug. 30 at 10 p.m. ET.
