I'm bolding the 1970-2006 period to emphasize that we have at least 11 guys in for every year from that time period, without ever reaching that number outside that period. Let nobody claim that we are neglecting the increased talent pool.

The slow decrease after 2006 reflects players with full careers retiring and more recent players still being in the middle of creating their legacies.
