Draft 14

Unrestricted Free Agents 4

trade 1

waivers 1


UDFA 2

Boone and Dawson were UDFA.

edit: The starting 22 does not include Dawson who is a kicker.

If you check the site's depth charts, they have Ian Williams, an undrafted free agent listed as the starting nose tackle.

I think that Dorsey, not Williams, will be the starter. Dorsey was an unrestricted free agent.

Not sure what this really means though. If you look at the teams with the most drafted starters, some of them aren't good. Check out the teams with as many as or more drafted starters than us: PIT 19, ATL 18, CAR 17, MIN 17, CLE 16, GB 16, KC 16, BAL 15, TEN 15, ARZ 14, BUF 14, CINI 14, TB 14. The only true Super Bowl contenders there are Atlanta and Green Bay. A few of those teams are straight up garbage. Meanwhile, teams like Houston, Seattle and Denver - all considered legitimate contenders - rank near the bottom.

I'm all for building through the draft, but this list doesn't prove anything IMO.

Interesting point, but who said that this list proved anything?

Well, nobody said it, but what's the point of compiling a list if it isn't supposed to prove anything at all?

Welcome to the Zone, home of things which don't prove much. Particularly during the offseason
