45 Percent Of \'16 Draft First Rounders Have Fifth-Year Option Declined 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri May 3, 2019 12:11 pm

Forty-five percent of first round picks (14 of 31) from the 2016 NFL Draft had their fifth-year options declined.

In each of the last two years, 20 fifth-year options were picked up and 12 were declined.

Jack Conklin was the highest selected player who had his option declined as the Tennessee Titans had selected him eight overall.

The Cleveland Browns had already released Corey Coleman, as had the Denver Broncos with Paxton Lynch.
