    Wouldn't using some sort of chart that took into account the amount spent on them

    AKA 1st overall OT isn't the same as the 7th rounder?

    Makes sense to me, because teams with good QB's draft offensive linemen to protect them.

    Kind of a dumb statistic. Giants only have 7 but won the SB last year, New Orleans is frequently a top team yet have drafted "few" linemen. Green bay has a very suspect O-Line despite being tied for most picks there. Colts also have a very bad offensive line despite picking so many linemen.

    Also, many of the teams who drafted a lot of linemen, arent making use of those linemen picked...

    -Green Bay: only 3/5 starters were actually draft picks
    -Philadelphia: only 2/5 starters were actually draft picks (based on "ideal" starting O-line if players werent injured)
    -Indianapolis: only 1/5 starters were draft picks
    -Baltimore: only 3/5 starts were draft picks

    Where as other teams who are drafting fewer are starting a more draft picks

    -Jets: 4/5
    -Cleveland: 5/5
    -Minnesota: 4/5

    Its drafting quality linemen and/or acquiring quality FA that matters. Same goes with any other position.

    All 5 of GB's starters in the playoffs were draft picks or UDFAs.

    4 of them were all drafted to start the season. Saturday was then replaced by UDFA EDS and Bulaga by UDFA Barclay. I don't think them being UDFAs should really change much from a 7th.

    His argument is regarding teams that draft OL. UDFA's are not drafted players, it doesnt matter if you contribute their talent level to a 7th round pick, the point is, they are unrelated to the draft-based numbers he listed. Saturday was replaced, but he wasnt drafted by the Packers, was replaced by another player that wasnt drafted by the packers. Sure the Bulaga was replaced by a UDFA so I will give you that, but my point still stands... Andrew Datko? Derek Sherrod? Caleb Schlauderaff? Jamon Meredith? Breno Giacomini? Alan Babre? Daryn Colledge? Jason Spitz? Tony Moll? Junius Coston? Will Whitticker?

    11 of those 15 OL they drafted didnt contribute to their success this season. As I said. Its about quality, not quantity.

    I have found a strong correlation between drafting Super Bowl winning Quarterbacks and winning

    Oh don't give me that semantical ****ing garbage. A player brought in DRAFTED OR UNDRAFTED makes no difference. There's almost no different between a 7th or an UDFA. Either way you were kind of wrong about what you were saying anyways with regards to our players.

    That being said, you go on and list players......okay cool. He never said every single one helped. You take your shots. The more shots you take, the more players you will find. It doesn't mean they all contribute
