    And of course I'm not the first one to think on these lines, Pro Football Focus has positional rankings using the same scale

    Here's an interesting article in this vein:

    Interesting read.

    Shocked at some of the low scores -- notable Claiborne, Demarcus Ware, Brandon Carr, and Tyrone Smith.

    Nice to see Hatcher listed as blue chip.

    From the article:

    Given this years results, the Redskins lend credence to the theory it may not be terrible to sacrifice some top level talent and commensurate cap cost in order to have a more similar talent level across the board and perhaps more depth. This doesn't account for their running game but I find it interesting nonetheless.

    Scary how low the secondary ranked considering how many cap $$ were allocated there

    The guy has fewer career sacks than Victor Butler, and he started all year for the Packers last year. 26 career starts to 2 for VB. Erik Walden is exactly the kind of player that floats around the league playing a little when a team doesn't have anyone better. He's not someone to make a part of your long term plans.
