Facing a potentially unique situation I would suggest differing ways teams could maximize their dollars come draft days. First, with Free Agency after the draft I would guess immediate holes have to be shored up and "best player available" will fall by the wayside. Suddenly our needs shift from DE/OLB to OT/G. Second positions that require the most amount of prep would be emphasized in the draft over Free Agents. RBs de-emphasized, it would be more likely we pick one up later in Free Agency. Third, and maybe most important, if some owners are convinced that no agreement will be reached and significant amount of games missed than I can see superior value in drafting players with injuries that would otherwise impact the '11 season. Redshirts too. For example a guy like our Tate who basically redshirted his first year we got in the 3rd round who may have been first round talent(ya, right) otherwise. If teams dont change their strategies and hope to count on their existing FAs(Light/Mankins-though technically not a FA)the players have alot more leverage after the CBA is reached. This will count more $$ against a future cap. Having prospects in place can surely help the team in negotiations. The more time they have in getting drafted players to speed(NFL ready)in certain positions the more successful the draft, right? Not to say the drafted players will get the coaching they need.....but they obviously will have the time to get their bodies and technical deficiencies worked on before they are thrown in the mix. Anyone have any other strategic differences??
