As far as rating the off season in terms of value added I think doing that with the draft can lead to complications. Both Konz and Ewing should be starters for a long time and we are at the point now where we don't have a ton of holes to fill every offseason. I keep seeing people talk about wanting another 2008 draft where we pulled in a haul of starters but chances are that won't happen again. We have a level of talent on this team, as Radical said, here anything other than a first rounder would likely have trouble finding a place in the top 22.
Grading FA IMO is where taking value added to the season can really be worthwhile. Most FA pickups are brought in with the expectation to contribute and make an impact from day 1. While the Draft is the place to build for the future on a team like ours FA is where you address immediate needs for the upcoming. season
Like I said I think the ankle injury Spoon suffered was far more severe than anyone knew.
