Greetings from Portlandia
My reaction to this well researched article is not about 1 or 2 players. I have teamwork/continuity/chemistry first philosophy in which the players are people with lives and families, and they make friends on the team; when they do they play better together, as a team. The wholesale replacement of the parts that "don't fit" will devastate what this team built last year. With a salary cap all 32 teams have their issues with some players and positions and they are hard to solve; deals are hard to make with other teams and players. Everyone involved is trying to get an advantage for themselves. What sets the good teams apart is chemistry; take Baltimore for example-not the most talented team but they played together with a purpose. The Redskins have proven in the past (and recently the Eagles) that filling the teams with good FA players who have never played together is a recipe for disaster. I would keep as many familiar faces around as stop gaps until the young talent develops. This will help the players feel they are in a stable work environment which will be attractive to future players.
I hope Miami can trade down because I like the mid/late rounds in this draft. I just wonder if there is a good enough player at #12, that is so much better than everyone else, that a smart SF front office would give all that especially since they don't need anything.
I think you show a good understanding of most of the players and draft prospects but you have absolutely no idea how to build/manage a team. I hate the "meat market" approach.
BTW, I suggest that you join FinHeaven VIP if you are looking for more thoughtful assesments of your ideas, because most posters out here will not take the time to read your ideas before they (over)react.
Thanks for the ideas and player assessments, they may be useful.
