I missed the point and said <5% but now that I see what you are saying more clearly, I'll say 10 - 15%.

Eric Fisher
Nico Johnson
Travis Kelce
Eric Kush
Josh Martin
Bradley McDougald (was on the roster for Jacksonville, and not the practice squad)

That's Bray, Martin, and McDougald. 3/10 = 30%

Considering the other bad teams in the league from last year like us, plus the good teams that will likely bring that number way down, I think 15-20% is a good guess. 10-15% as well. I don't think it's higher or lower than those two.
Chiefs are pretty typical.

270 Rookies on opening day rosters
79 of those 270 are UDFAs

29.2%

I was surprised it was so high.

That means 191 out of 254 draft picks made the roster. That seems about what I would expect.

They try harder. Like a fat girl sucking a dick.

So 63 drafted players didn't make it but 70 undrafted did. Pretty balanced.

And I voted wrong, I did not read as fraction of rookies, I read it as fraction of the 53. Take one 5-9.99 vote and put it at the 20-24.99 category.
