One of my favorite Rick Spielman offensive line insights from two years ago:
'Spielman looked at the correlation between draft placement and NFL success — and surprisingly found that guys drafted higher were usually better. He admitted that a “much lower percentage” of linemen taken after the third round were productive blockers.'
From a poster at DN:
Just look at the final 4 left in the playoffs, all have above avg line play that allows them to be successful.
This is true, and all of them spent significantly more draft capital on their lines
