The Texas Offense NFL Draft Drought

Tucked away in a discussion of Texas' NFL Draft prospects on the offensive side of the ball at Barking Carnival was this little nugget from Scipio Tex:

Texas offense that saw its last draft choice come from the 2005 recruiting class. I wish that was a misprint. 2009's foreshadowing, 2010's total meltdown, and 2011's struggles make some sense, don't they? On offense, we effectively had the upper class talent of a Conference USA team.

Considering the number of Division I prospects the state churns out every single season, it's simply inexcusable for the coaching staff at the University of Texas to so badly miss in recruiting for such a long stretch of time.

Whether it's the input (mis-evaluating the players as prospects), the output (the developmental model in Austin) or some combination of both, this stat tells you all you need to know about why a coaching purge was so essential after the 2010 season.
