There are a few teams that seem to continually draft and develop LBs and defensive players into playmakers(Pitts/Balt)... and they almost never draft STers! Special teams is a place for those players who are not only backups but development players. The past few years we have DRAFTED STers and still our ST is below league average. In a day where the difference between keeping a guy and letting him go to free agency can cripple a team, why not use those last 3-4 spots on the roster to build depth instead of becoming overly specialized? I am not saying that special teams arent important(or as important), but that the long term well being of the team and the roster would be better served using every spot to maximize VALUE spots on the field, not the number of plays each player is on the field for. Making plays takes a special type of player, we need more of them on this team.
