Panthers 2012 draft picks cost per snaps played

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

The National Football Post.com has posted the snaps played by every 2012 draft, along with their 2012 salary, showing their cost per each snap played. It makes the Panthers draft look very good, with only WR/PR Joe Adams above the average cost for where he was drafted, but punter Brad Nortman was between the 2011 and 2012 averages. Here are how the Panthers draft picks rank.

Pick Number - Snap Number - Cost Per Snap - Name

9th - 1004 - $2,278 - MLB Luke Kuechly

40th - 933 - $ 962 - LG Amini Silatolu

103rd- 596 - $ 852 - DE Frank Alexander

104th - 67 - $7,565 - WR/PR Joe Adams

143rd- 895 - $ 491 - CB Josh Norman

207th- 146 - $2,806 - P Brad Nortman

216th- 284 - $1,428 - S D. J. Campbell

They also use 2011 7th round pick (by the 49ers) S Colin Jones of the Panthers as an example of a good value 7th round pick. He played 204 snaps in 2011, for a cost per snap of $1,959, and 271 snaps in 2012, for a cost per snap of $1,716. Here are the average cost per snap from the 2011 and 2012 drafts.

Draft Round - Snaps - Cost Per Snap

2011 Draft

1st - 19,686 - $3,263

2nd - 12,338 - $1,892

3rd - 8,854 - $1,958

4th - 6,307 - $2,431

5th - 5,127 - $2,606

6th - 4,347 - $2,911

7th - 2,719 - $5,793

2012 Draft

1st - 22,696 - S2,773

2nd - 19,728 - $1,218

3rd - 11,908 - $1,448

4th - 12,496 - $1,579

5th - 5,662 - $2,448

6th - 6,634 - $1,800

7th - 6,123 - $2,264

As you can see from the above charts, the 2012 draft had much more talent than the 2011 draft. The 2012 draft had twice as many snaps played by 4th and 7th round picks as the 2011 draft, with the 2012 draft having more snaps played in each round.
