Putting Names to Numbers: Determining What Seattle Spent to Sign Charlie Whitehurst - Field Gulls
We can assign an abstract value to Seattle moving from the 40th overall pick or we can try and see exactly what players it might cost us. I would rather do the latter. Seattle is only truly set at two positions, linebacker and center, so we can be pretty sure it would have targeted the best available talent at 40. 40 is widely considered one of the most valuable picks in the draft, because it is very close in quality to latter first round picks, but cheaper. 61 is similarly cheap, but gives a team less flexibility when it comes to matching scheme and matching need.
