  1. Good points about the pass rush details. We do have a pathetic pass rush and it’s making some guys look worse than they really are. With a QB being priority #1 and OL priority #2 it’s going to be harder to get a dynamic type of pass rusher.

  2. Podcast isn’t working

  3. Dukeshire says:

    I’ve never agreed more with Rang than his take on draft position. Is there anything more overblown than draft position, aside from #1 overall? If position meant that much, a team like the Raiders wouldn’t have picked inside the top 10 each of the past 5 years and likely to be in there again this April. You have to get the right player, regardless.

    I actually liked his take on Tate and the pass rush, as well.

    Good podcast, E.

    “I look at one team that is improving week by week and has talent at the key positions. Then I look at the Seahawks…” Lol

    Wow here the Seahawk’s have a chance to make the playoff’s in four day’s and almost all the talk is about a draft in a possible lockout year!
    Don’t get too caught up with this draft talk! Even if we get a QB and an offensive lineman in the draft it will likely take more time for them to develope.
    I am a believer that free agency and player development are just as important for our team’s overall improvment for next year!

  5. GeorgiaHawk says:

    And when I say free agency is just as important then the draft, it may even be more important. Because it’s two fold. It’s not just who we may get, it also is about keeping the player’s that we have here already!
    Think big mike! Think washington!

  6. There’s a reason that teams “build” through the draft, and “fill-in” through free agency. Interesting read: “Why Free Agent Signings Turn Out so Dissapointing” http://www.advancednflstats.com/2010/04/why-free-agent-signings-turn-out-so.html

  7. If there’s a lockout in 2011 for the minor changes that’re being made public, that doesn’t bode well for the future. Players salaries have become gei-normous, and if (or when) there’s a true market correction (NFL bubble bursts), there’s probably much more significant changes acomin.

    Like changing free agency. Currently free agency causes players salories to inflate. Maybe team owners will again become the “owners” of a player’s right to play in the NFL? Rather than obtaining needed veteran players through ebay-type auctions, teams would bargain with other teams directly for the rights to players (like in those “good ‘ol days”). But that could lead to the stronger-market teams continually beating weaker market teams, so maybe another way’s needed.

    Maybe there could be a “draft-style” free-agency? Non-playoff teams hosting position-drafts for veteran players, and like future rookie drafts, developing cap amounts for top-selected players. Teams selecting veteran draftees are based on statistically-determined needs at that position, with the most needing getting the earliest selection. And like the rookie draft, teams could trade picks for current players, or for draft slots in other position drafts, or for the rookie draft.
