Pat Kirwan posted his definition of whether a team had depth, and its based on 13 questions. I thought it was the best definition of depth I've see so far.
Based on Pat Kirwans definition, does your team have depth?
The 13 questions are as follows:
1. Does your team have quality backup QB? (If he can go at least 2-2 in a 4 game stretch, the answer to this question is yes. If not, the answer is no)
2. Does your team have a real swing offensive tackle, a guy that can play left or right tackle and has experience?
3. Does your team have a solid inside offensive lineman that can play guard or center?
4. Is there a quality second running back that can deliver a 100-yard rushing day if he had to start?
5. Is there a good second tight end on the roster?
6. Can the third wide receiver step up and start in the two-WR packages if a starter went down?
7. Does your team have a designated pass-rush specialist who could play the early downs if need be?
8. Is there a third defensive tackle that not only plays in a rotation but could play the whole game if need be?
9. Is there a quality nickel corner on the roster, since most teams are at least 50 percent sub defenses?
10 Is there a fourth corner for dime packages?
11. Is there a third safety for big nickel defenses?
12. Is there a return specialist that can either handle both punt and kick returns or contribute as a real position player?
13. Does your team have a special-teams linebacker that leads the specials and can play inside linebacker in a pinch?
Go for it.
