False Narratives: You need a top-20 pick to get a ‘premium’ offensive lineman

[ad_1]

Cease me for those who’ve heard this one earlier than: “Seattle by no means picks within the Prime 20 to allow them to’t get a premium (insert participant place right here).”

Sounds tremendous acquainted, proper?

Maybe you’ve gotten even thought (or written) these phrases your self.

However is it true?

Or is it a case of notion and actuality not aligning?

At the moment I’m going to attempt to persuade you, my fellow 12s, that that is a false narrative.

Within the means of doing so, I’ll ignore the urge to level out that Seattle “by no means” has a top-20 decide as a result of they constantly area a Prime-12 group.

Be aware: I phrased it that method as a result of whereas it was once that for those who made the playoffs, the best you might decide was #21, the league’s choice to broaden to 7 playoff groups in every convention now implies that Seattle might be a playoff group and decide as excessive as #19.

I can even ignore the present regime’s historic tendency to commerce again within the first spherical and decide up further picks and/or to easily commerce away their first spherical decide(s) to accumulate the aforementioned “premium” expertise.

As an alternative, what I wish to deal with is whether or not a group can get a “premium” participant after decide #20.

__________

For at the moment’s piece, I’m going to be offensive linemen.

I selected the O-line as a result of I used to be already performing some analysis on the subject – “2 birds, 1 stone” is an efficiency-geek’s mantra in any case.

Another excuse I selected O-linemen is that there have been 48 of them chosen within the top-20 since Pete Carroll and John Schneider took the reins of our beloved Seahawks. That’s a median of 4 per 12 months.

And with 20% of all of the top-20 picks over the past 12 years having been O-linemen, it eliminates the “small pattern measurement” issues.

The year-by-year breakdown, 2010-2021:

(A tip of the cap to cortone for initially offering these numbers in one other thread.)

There have been a few different concerns as properly …

  • With fewer “glamour” stats than the “ability positions” (QB, WR, RB, TE), there’s prone to be much less debate about “what issues” when figuring out “premium”-ness.
  • There’s a semi-related narrative that claims Seattle doesn’t spend draft capital on offensive linemen.

That final bullet is NOT the main focus of at the moment’s piece – partly as a result of it’s a very subjective narrative that relies upon far too closely on what some may name “strawman arguments.”

As an example, is the the truth that Seattle has drafted at the very least 1 offensive lineman in 11 of the 12 drafts led by the present regime sufficient to disprove the narrative?

Or would somebody counter with the truth that 10 of the 18 O-linemen drafted by PC/JS have been Day 3 picks and that solely the primary one (Russell Okung, #6 general) was drafted greater than #25?

No thanks!

Be aware: The draft information is per Professional Soccer Reference and an entire checklist of the offensive linemen that Seattle has drafted since 2010 is within the Bonus Protection part on the finish of this text.

__________

At the moment is nearly TOP-20 versus NOT-TOP-20, each from a numbers perspective and the way that shakes out on a league-wide scale.


The 2021 NFL Draft

Y’all know that I prefer to take you on a journey, so to talk, so let’s begin this one with what I prefer to name “pure hypothesis” – aka, the crapshoot that’s the NFL Draft.

Offensive linemen chosen within the top-20:

The opposite offensive linemen chosen on Day One:

Offensive linemen chosen on Day Two earlier than Seattle was on the clock:

  • OC Landon Dickerson, #37, Philadelphia Eagles
  • OT Teven Jenkins, #39, Chicago Bears
  • OT Liam Eichenberg, #42, Miami Dolphins
  • OT Walker Little, #45, Jacksonville Jaguars
  • OT Jackson Carman, #46, Cincinnati Bengals
  • OT Samuel Cosmi, #51, Washington Soccer Crew
  • OT Dillon Radunz, #53, Tennessee Titans

Offensive linemen chosen on Day Two after Seattle chosen WR D’Wayne Eskridge:

  • OC Josh Myers, #62, Inexperienced Bay Packers
  • OC Creed Humphrey, #63, Kansas Metropolis Chiefs
  • OT Jalen Mayfield, #68, Atlanta Falcons
  • OT Brady Christensen, #70, Carolina Panthers
  • OG Wyatt Davis, #86, Minnesota Vikings – this was initially Seattle’s decide
  • OG Kendrick Inexperienced, #87, Pittsburgh Steelers
  • OT Spencer Brown, #93, Buffalo Payments
  • OG Ben Cleveland, #94, Baltimore Ravens
  • OG Robert Hainsey, #95, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • OC Quinn Meinerz, #99c, Denver Broncos

Clearly, we don’t but know which of those gamers will change into “premium” offensive linemen … and even what number of will find yourself as long-term starters. But it surely’s a reasonably protected guess that the Hawks may have used at the very least certainly one of them. And it appears cheap to assume that it gained’t simply be the 4 top-20 gamers which have a shot at incomes a Professional Bowl choice or being named to an All-Professional group in some unspecified time in the future.

Let’s discuss one thing else although …

Seattle didn’t use a draft decide on an offensive lineman this 12 months till Spherical 6. We are able to speculate all we wish as to why that’s, however the easy fact is that the group’s priorities don’t at all times align with the followers’ priorities.

Generally groups move on “certain factor” gamers at one place as a result of they’ve a necessity at a unique place or consider {that a} completely different participant is a greater match or extra engaging or … no matter … and we, as followers, virtually by no means get a clear look into the why.

That mentioned, as somebody who hoped we would seize an offensive lineman (or 2) on this 12 months’s draft, seeing each our 2021 R1 and our 2021 R3 utilized by the Vikings to pick offensive linemen … SIGH.


NFC West Starters

I’ll embrace the entire checklist of projected starters for the opposite 28 NFL groups within the “Bonus Protection” part on the finish of this text, however within the curiosity of “de-cluttering” the article itself, I’m solely going to deal with the NFC West proper now.

The next projected starters are primarily based on ESPN’s present depth charts.

Seahawks

  • LT Duane Brown, 2008, R1.26 (Texans)
  • LG Damien Lewis, 2020, R3.69
  • OC Ethan Pocic, 2017, R2.58

  • RG Austin Corbett, 2018, R2.33 (Browns)
  • RT Rob Havenstein, 2015, R2.57
  • Chart

Enjoyable Truth: League-wide, 6 offensive linemen who received their begin in Seattle are projected to be Week 1 starters in 2021; two of them right here in Seattle and 4 for different groups.

That’s the prime quantity within the NFC West. The 49ers’ quantity is 3, Arizona’s is 2, and the Rams’ is 5.

__________

NFCW beginning offensive linemen picked within the Prime 20:

  • Seattle: 0
  • San Francisco: 2 – each beginning tackles
  • Arizona: 1 – their left guard
  • Los Angeles: 0
  • Division totals: 3 out of twenty-two *

* See earlier notations as to why the # is 22 as an alternative of 20.

  • Quantity chosen #1 to #20: 29
  • Quantity drafted #21 and past: 95
  • Quantity that had been undrafted: 16

Measuring “premium”-ness

One may clearly argue that “starter doesn’t equal ‘premium’ participant.”

Admittedly, I’ve argued that time myself quite a lot of occasions — largely after I was evaluating Germain Ifedi to a bear on curler skates.

That mentioned, I feel most would agree that Professional Bowl nominations and/or being named to an All-Professional group IS a professional method to measure premium-ness.

So let’s check out what which offensive linemen made the most-recent Professional Bowl and/or had been named to the 2020 All-Professional group.

__________

2020 Professional Bowl roster

AFC Squad

Starters:

  • LT Ronnie Stanley, 2016, R1.06
  • LT Laremy Tunsil, 2016, R1.13
  • RG Marshal Yanda, 2007, R3.86
  • LG Quenton Nelson, 2018, R1.06
  • OC Maurkice Pouncey, 2010, R1.18

Subsequent Man Up:

NFC Squad

Starters:

  • LT David Bakhtiari, 2013, R4.109
  • LT Tyron Smith, 2011, R1.09
  • RG Brandon Brooks, 2012, R3.76
  • RG Zack Martin, 2014, R1.16
  • OC Jason Kelce, 2011, R6.191

Subsequent Man Up:

2020 Professional Bowl offensive linemen picked within the Prime 20:

  • AFC: 4 of 8 — 50%
  • NFC: 3 of 8 — 37.5%
  • Mixed: 7 of 16 — 43.8%

__________

2020 All-Professional group

That is the cream of the crop proper right here!

First-team All-Professional

Second-team All-Professional

  • LT Garett Bolles, 2017, R1.20
  • LG Joel Bitonio, 2014, R2.35
  • OC Ryan Kelly, 2016, R1.18
  • OC Frank Ragnow, 2018, R1.20
  • RG Wyatt Teller, 2018, R5.166
  • RT Ryan Ramczyk, 2017, R1.32

2020 All-Professional offensive linemen picked within the Prime 20:

  • First-team: 3 of 5 — 60%
  • Second-team: 3 of 6 — 50%
  • Mixed: 6 of 11 — 54.5%

__________

Mixed numbers

Between the 2020 Professional Bowl rosters and the 2020 All-Professional groups, there have been 27 slots obtainable for offensive linemen.

  • 13 of the 27 went to gamers who had been drafted within the top-20 — 48.1%
  • 14 went to gamers drafted outdoors the top-20 — 51.9%

There’s an issue with these numbers although ….

Three of the gamers elected to the 2020 Professional Bowl had been additionally a first-team All-Professional. These three gamers had been LT David Bakhtiari, LG Quinton Nelson, and RG Brandon Scherff.

That implies that we counted every of them twice … which skews the numbers.

If we solely depend every participant as soon as, meaning we’re 24 “distinctive” gamers and the outcomes find yourself like this:

  • 11 of the 24 had been drafted within the top-20 — 45.8%
  • 13 of them weren’t — 54.2%

Abstract + Conclusion

As a 12, I perceive the lamentations.

I share the issues and the frustrations concerning the offensive line … concerning the group’s strategy to it, about their success fee with their draft picks, and so forth.

Like everybody else, I suffered by way of the Cable years.

However saying that Seattle’s points on the offensive line are due to the Seahawks’ lack of top-20 picks … ?

That’s a false narrative.
