Well, looks like the 1st round comes out ahead 10-3 ... maybe he meant in the modern era ......... or maybe he was just making it up ....
quite compelling. You know that 90% of stats are made up 50% of the time when 25% of the stats are only 75% true....

You could have at least spent to the time to get a decent quotation. Like Twain's, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics." I'm not trying to be compelling, just answering SmootSmack's question about "not sure where he got this" and the answer is he made it up because it actually isn't true. Doesn't mean Thomas and Kelly will fail, that was not the point I was making, just saying in the past ten years more Pro Bowls do not come out of the 2nd round as Cerrato said. I was curious, so I looked it up, before looking I thought he might be correct.

I agree with you 100%. I was not saying your stats were wrong, just that anyone in the world, inlcuding Cerrato, could just make stats up off the tops of their heads and say its true and sound very intelligent. You on the other hand, went out and got stats on paper that proved Vinny wrong. My post was an attempt to sound intelligent, just like Cerrato did thus making my aforementioned point.
