I'm not sure how many players drafted between 1996-2004 on other teams are on their current roster, but 4 sounds pretty pathetic. That really shows how bad our drafts have been over the last decade. It starts at the top, but I do think that we may have turned the corner with the hiring of Bobby Heck
