    Time will tell. He wouldn't be cheap, that's for sure.

    That is for sure... I look at players like stocks. Buy low and sell high. Right now his stock is at an all time high and he has expressed an interest in staying in Seattle. Everyone out here thinks the Seakhawks are in dynasty mode and I'm sure the players have bought into it. Personally... with the modern NFL rules I think dynasties as we knew them are a thing of the past.

    Got the right size and got the production to start in the NFL. There's a whole heap more than that to look at with scouting but if you've got those 2 basics you are heading in the right direction.

    9.5 sacks and 14.5 tfl in what 12 games maybe? What I'd give for a DE who gives us a sack more weeks than not and a tackle for loss or two. That right there is how you wreck 2 offensive drives per game. It takes a good offense to keep drives alive after taking a sack or having a few tackles for loss and an even better one to do all that whilst the other team is putting up points with the ball.

    Come on Emery and Tucker lets rebuild this front 4 at least.

    I feel confident Ealy's stock will skyrocket after the combine. I'd see him as a top 10, possibly top 5 pick.

    Even IF Bennett were to come here, the need for a DE is still there b/c Peppers is likely cut.

    It seems like it's more important than ever, that teams maximize their success rate in the draft. This is key to sustained success in the NFL. Sure, fill in gaps with value options in FA (exactly what you mentioned, it's like stocks.....buy low, and limit the buy high players as much as possible). If a team has a rock solid scouting department and GM, then you can still have sustained success in the NFL. I'm hoping we have that kind of guy in Phil Emery. Only time will tell.
