The Seahawks Should Aim To Draft Between Picks 11-18

If the Seahawks hope to draft their QB of the future, they should aim to be holding a pick between 11-18 on draft day.

 

**I used to have bounds of energy for things like writing about the Seahawks. Now I have kids. Here is my outline, hopefully you'll see where I was going with it:

 

I. Historical Analysis of Player Value 

  A. Player value determined by draft selection/rookie wage scale

         1. Establish 2012 rookie wage scale 

         2. Previous picks within range and their relative value

         3. Establish league-wide desirability of range for selection

II. Historical Analysis of Quarterback Selections in the First Round

  A. Who drafts QB's and how do they accomplish it?

         1. Historical look

             1a. First round QB selections

             1b. First round QB trades 

        2. Determining factors of draft selection in relation to current QB depth

        3. Establish likelihood of teams drafting QB's in the first round of the 2012 draft

III. Potential for Trade

  A. Cost

        1. Explain Trade Value Chart 

        2. Establish numerical value of picks using Trade Value Chart

               2a. 1250-900  (11-18)

               2b. 1600-1300 (6-10)

               2c. 3000-1700 (1-5)

  B. What does this mean for us?

        1. Explain league-wide organizational desire to accumulate picks

        2. Examine compensation required for the Seahawks to move from picks 11-18 to picks 1-5.

        3. Make the connection between compensation required and the appeal to a potential seller
