Draft Player Movement by Team

The following table shows the status of each team's draft selections from 2010-2016 after their rookie (entry-level) contract. We've broken this down by the total number of draft picks (Players Drafted), players who are still active under their rookie contract (Still Under Rookie Contract), players that have been extended, or re-signed via free agency with their original draft team (Have been re-signed/extended), players who were lost by way of free agency (Lost to Free Agency), and players who were waived, released, traded, or retired during or immediately after their rookie contract. The Retained and Relinquished columns signify the total percentages of players still on the team, or no longer on the team, respectively. Finally, click the red arrow in the last column to see the complete list of players for a particular team who are subject to this report, including their rookie contract details, and status.
