Late round picks (attn: Lanterman)

It seems like there has been a lot of turmoil about late round picks here, one comment said we would be a 'laughingstock' for drafting another long snapper in the 7th, and there has been a whole string about todd boeckman being a potential franchise QB getting drafted in the 7th.

 

Another example might be all the late round WRs that the team has picked up, and a lot of angst that our 6th and 7th round picks have been 'wasted' on Obomanu, Kent, Taylor, et al. 

 

I definitely understand that its a no risk/potentially infinite reward pick, but is there any data on what a reasonable expectation is for these picks?  for example how what percentage of 7th round picks ever start a single game?  I've always seen everything after the 4th round as scratching a lotto ticket; its awesome when you get something but i'm not worried if it turns out to be a total blank.

 

So what does the data say?  How does Ruskell match up to league average?  Obviously the data range goes from Tom Brady and Marques Colston down to "cut from the practice squad" and everything in between, but what should we be expecting out of these picks?

 

Thanks in advance!
