The reasons why this is important are two-fold: 1) It shows that a good number of players from a draft class actually made the roster, and 2) A good number of those players had lengthy NFL careers.
Here are the most combined career games played by a single team's draft class since 2005.
1. 2006 Green Bay Packers -- 869
The skinny: This is an underrated draft class due to the conflicting feelings many might harbor as to Hawk's overall impact on the field for the Packers. That being said, Hawk was a regular starter during his nine years in Green Bay. Three players from this draft class -- Hawk, Colledge and Jennings -- started in the team's win in Super Bowl XLV, and a fourth -- Spitz -- was a member of that championship team. Tollefson's 78 games played all came with the New York Giants, with whom he was a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams.
2. 2005 Tennesse Titans -- 849
The skinny: The Titans got some serious mileage out of two of the offensive linemen that they selected in the 2005 draft. Roos spent each of his 10 NFL seasons with the Titans, starting all 148 games he played in. He announced his retirement from the game this offseason. Stewart also started each of his 116 games played with the team over his eight seasons with the Titans.
3. 2005 San Francisco 49ers -- 808
The skinny: Gore left San Francisco this offseason as the team's all-time rushing yardage leader, easily outpacing Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Perry (11,073 to 8,689). Smith ranks sixth in 49ers franchise history in passing yards with 14,280, just behind Pro Football Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle (16,016) and ahead of Frankie Albert (10,795).
4. 2005 Dallas Cowboys -- 802
The skinny: Before being released in 2014 by the Cowboys in a move to save salary-cap space, Ware had already established himself as the franchise's career sacks leader (117; Jim Jeffcoat is No. 2 with 94.5). Barber ranks sixth on the team's rushing yardage list with 4,358 yards, ranking just ahead of Walt Garrison and Herschel Walker on the list.
5. 2006 New York Jets -- 780
The skinny: Ferguson enters his 10th season with the Jets riding a 144-game consecutive starts streak. Mangold enters his 10th season having missed just three starts. Smith was a dual-threat college quarterback at Missouri, but found a niche early in his NFL career as a wildcat quarterback (back when the wildcat was en vogue). Even though that's been a recurring role for Smith during his career, he's also contributed as a receiver and return specialist.
6. 2006 New Orleans Saints -- 745
7. 2006 San Francisco 49ers -- 720
8. 2005 Philadelphia Eagles -- 718
The skinny: Cole rose from fifth-round draft pick to become second on the Eagles' all-time sacks list with 85.5; Pro Football Hall of Famer Reggie White is No. 1 with 124. After 10 seasons in Philadelphia, Cole was released by the Eagles following the 2014 season. Cole's longtime Eagles teammate, Herremans, rejoins him with the Indianapolis Colts.
9. 2006 Baltimore Ravens -- 715
10. 2005 St. Louis Rams -- 695
The skinny: After nearly a year and a half away from the game, Incognito was signed by the Buffalo Bills this offseason. Fitzpatrick has had a vagabond existence in the NFL as an on-again, off-again starting quarterback. An offseason trade to the New York Jets placed Fitzpatrick on his sixth NFL team.
