    Interesting read. Too bad he doesn’t say anything about drafting QBs as backups, which is a silly thing to waste a pick on, IMO. There are always plenty of failed starters floating around the NFL. Pick one of those up as a FA, and you can be assured of getting someone with at least minimal NFL chops to hold the clipboard.

      Yeah, I couldn’t agree more here.

      Actually, I seriously doubt that I would ever take a QB in the draft. particularly if I were rebuilding which, as a Lions fan, represents the near totality of my experience. i would take offensive and defensive linemen along with linebackers, early every year … year after year. Then, because I had beau coup depth on my offensive line, was rotating 8 nice players across my 4/3 defense and had depth at linebacker, I’d behave like New England and trade for some skilled need whenever I had a guy approaching free agency that I knew was going to bust my budget.

      I’d mostly look for running backs and receivers late.

      I’d chase veteran safeties hard in free agency as veteran safeties are your best safeties … probably corners too.

      I’d always be on the lookout for another experienced, accurate arm that came attached to a guy who has played behind an awful offensive line. Then I would ask that guy, “Are you tired of getting hit in the mouth yet?” I would continue by saying, “I have pro bowlers on my offensive line.”

        Building through the lines is wise at any level.
