Misconception in Free Agency


I like many people on the board thought that we signed Harvey and Anderson to replace Fanene and Rucker as a flyer based on draft potential. After reading Peter king’s assessment of our free agency period, I decided to relook it. We were wrong.

It is true, that neither Harvey nor Anderson lived up to their eighth overall draft position. However, in their combined 9 years in the NFL, they have more tackles than Fanene and Rucker have in their 13 years, and many more solo tackles. They also have more passes defended, which makes sense since both are taller. They have fewer sacks, but the average 2 a year, just like Rucker and Fanene.

Once I really looked at the number I realized that Harvey and Anderson are younger bigger, faster and more productive than Rucker and Fanene. They did not live up to their draft potential, but we did not draft them so that does not matter. Anderson and Harvey are an upgrade to our defensive line.
