For all of you freaking out that Veldheer got offered so much because of the implications on Monroe, Ian Rappaport has reported that those numbers are false and that there is an offer on the table which Veldheer is mulling over the weekend, but those numbers are not accurate. Read down in the comments on the tweet. The person who tweeted those numbers has already apologized from what I hear

Trading down does NOT mean less talent!

Is Rajon Rondo a better fit than Lowry?

+

Not sure how I feel about this. Lowry is a better scorer, Rondo a better facilitator. Rondo has a better overall game, but we are winning right now with Kyle Lowry as the leader of the team. Rondo also has potential attitude problems, and has never been the leader of his team. Would you want to get Rondo, or are we better off keeping our picks and resigning Lowry? If the money is not an issue and Lowry would resign for the same $11 million that Rondo makes, who would you choose?

Why we hired Juan Castillo

+

The main reason why John Harbaugh outbid seven other teams to hire Juan Castillo as his run game coordinator (overseeing the O-line) is to develop cheap lineman into serviceable players. We all know Juan will develop late round picks and undrafted free agents. That’s been his identity! The Eagles only drafted two 1st round linemen the 13 years he was the head O-line coach. Bubba Miller, Hank Fraley, Artist Hicks, Nick Cole, and Austin Howard were all undrafted free agents who he developed into solid starters. During 12 of those 13 years, the Eagles never had a drafted center and averaged two college free agents as starters in each year. The year the Eagles went to the Super Bowl they played with two undrafted free agents on the line. When C Hank Fraley was up for a new contract they let him go to the Browns via free agency and just developed another guy. Expect Joe Banner to put the same formula in place if he gets a QB he covets and an O-line coach he trusts to develop young players. So what does all this mean? This formula saved the team from having to pay and/or draft top lineman so they can put the money elsewhere. So I would suspect as long as the Ravens have Juan Castillo they will not be drafting any lineman in the top three rounds for the foreseeable future. As the QB numbers go up the positions that will suffer financially the most will be linebacker, fullback, running back, receiver and safety. Left tackles will still get paid but centers and guards will be developed from late round and/or undrafted college free agents. For those teams who have a 25 million dollar a year QB, they better have a plan on how they are going to scout, draft, pay and develop young cheap players.
