The Packers have built their team through drafting and development. The Bears, more than any other “Final Four” squad, got their talent from other organizations.
Those are some of the conclusions to be made from this nifty set of charts from BusinessInsider.com that breaks down roster composition for the final four teams. A few notes:
1. 32% of the Bears roster was drafted by another team, easily tops of the four remaining teams. The Packers have the fewest from other teams with only 13%.
2. The Jets have the most undrafted players — 36% of their roster. The Packers are close with 34%. Green Bay’s numbers are higher because so many of their drafted players are now on injured reserve.
3. Pittsburgh actually has the highest percentage of players they drafted on the squad with 57%, although the Packers and Bears are close behind. The Jets only drafted 38% of their team, which shows the creative and varied ways they have built their roster.
