2014 NFL Draft: History of Pick 13

New, comments

No selection in the NFL Draft is a sure thing, and pick 13 is no different.

Al Bello

The Rams second selection in the 2014 NFL Draft is pick 13. While pick 13 doesn't carry the pressure that the second overall pick in the draft does, it is still high enough that if you miss, it could set your franchise back significantly. The last three selections at 13 resulted in a defensive rookie of the year, a 1,000-yard receiver, and a defensive tackle who has 12.5 sacks in 38 games played; Sheldon Richardson, Michael Floyd, and Nick Fairley.

Here are some quick facts about pick 13:

  1. 6 of the last 8 years the pick has been a defensive lineman
  2. The last time a QB was taken at 13 was 27 years ago
  3. Since 1991, five wide receivers have been selected at 13
  4. Those five wideouts combined for just three 1,000 yard seasons and 0 pro-bowls
