In a blog post that pointed out how the Patriots have selected just six running backs over the last 11 drafts, "DinoScapelli" wrote in the comments section: "Can you list all the positions that have been drafted more often than RB? Has any other than K or P been drafted less often?"

Cornerback -- 12
