Impact report: 2010 NFL draft choices

Following up draft-related items from Thursday, I've put together a chart showing how many 2010 regular-season starts NFC West teams got from their rookie draft choices, by round.

Some of those starts were unintended, including the four Arizona got from quarterback John Skelton. No team found an immediate, full-season starter after the second round.

The 49ers got the most starts from their rookie draft choices, but the St. Louis Rams got the higher-quality starts, thanks to the positions their starters played (quarterback, left tackle).

I'll take a more qualitative look in the future, taking into account that teams drafting earlier should fare better, as should teams with additional choices.
