Assessing the quarterback draft needs by evaluating the depth charts

Assessing the quarterback draft needs by evaluating the depth charts

Hyped by on February 21, 2013 Website:

Raise your hand if you’re tired of reading the same ‘ole team needs articles out there (hand raised). We are opting for a different angle on the team needs. Teams evaluations of needs involve so much more than just saying we need a starter here. They are looking at the depth chart as a more long-term projection.
How’s our backup? How’s our backups contract? Do we have a developmental guy at a certain position?
We ranked each position on each team to form our team needs. This is equal parts math and evaluation. A formula was created that rewarded points for defining worth of a player. With 7 points being the highest value, marking an elite, franchise player. Sad to say but 0 points is attributed to a player with no value on the roster. Think of someone with developmental hopes and a likely future or present cut.
We are not evaluating just the starters but a team’s two and three deep. We will start with the quarterbacks from worst to first.
**Special thanks to for their great updates on teams depth charts. Free agents are in blue.
32. Kansas City Chiefs
Brady Quinn, Matt Cassel, Ricky Stanzi, Alex Tanney
Brady Quinn is an UFA and Matt Cassel isn’t likely to be around. Ricky Stanzi and Alex Tanney offer very little in terms of long-term developmental prospects. This roster is completely devoid of a starter, backup, and developmental guy.
