T-10. Ryan Grigson, Indianapolis Colts
The skinny: Grigson has had 9.09 percent of his draftees (two players) make it to a Pro Bowl. That's a relatively good hit rate so far; it helps when an executive's initial first-round pick is a no-brainer: Andrew Luck.

T-10. Ozzie Newsome, Baltimore Ravens
The skinny: Newsome also has had 9.09 percent of his draftees (10 players) make it to a Pro Bowl. Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs and Marshal Yanda are among those who have been picked under Newsome's watch.

4. Rick Smith, Houston Texans
The skinny: Smith has had 12.33 percent of his draft picks (nine players) make it to a Pro Bowl. Smith first-rounder J.J. Watt, the 11th overall pick when he came out, might end up being the best defensive player of his era. (An aside: Smith played at Purdue from 1988-92; a teammate in his final two seasons at Purdue was Ryan Grigson.)
3. John Schneider, Seattle Seahawks
The skinny: Schneider has had a lot of success in a relatively short amount of time. He has had 14.58 percent of his draftees (seven players) make a Pro Bowl. Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson are among his draftees.
