Just some random trivia.

Round 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8+ Total
QB 2 1 2 2 7
HB 3 1 2 1 4 2 4 17
FB 1 2 1 1 5
WR 2 1 6 5 1 8 2 2 27
TE 1 1 1 1 3 1 8
OT 4 1 1 3 3 3 1 16
OG 1 1 3 2 3 10

ILB 1 1 1 1 1 5
DE 1 1 1 3 2 1 1 10

If we assume the following:

A 1st round pick is worth an average of 1188 points
2nd round = 416 points
3rd round = 188 points
4th round = 71 points
5th round = 34 points
6th round = 22 points
7th round = 9 points
8th round+ = 1.5 points

The starting line-up doesn't look that great-there's a few good to great players, but there's also some real stinkers.

The rub though is that coaches and Carl have admitted that the King leaves most decisions up to them on draft day.

He gave Marty his choice. Same with Gun. Same with DV, who then turned and delegated (WORTHLESS ****SKIN INFECTION!1!) to GROB on defense...

You're just about to see my argument.

Lamar put his complete trust in Carl.

Bad decision.

Carl but his complete trust in his HC.

Bad decision.

Clark has decided to evaluate the situation himself and trust nothing.

GOOD decision...

FB - Donnell Bennett, Bill Jones

I nearly made an ass out of myself by posting something along the lines of, "Hey, what about Kimble Anders or Tony Richardson?"

Turns out both were undrafted.

Which begs the question... How much credit should Carl Peterson get for undrafted free agents like Richardson or Anders, since he (or his scouting department) sought them out and offered them contracts.

And how different does that 53-man roster look when you factor in UFAs?

Who do you think was on the scouting dept. then?...

Mike Elkins to Sylvester Morris would have made a sweet combonation.
