In Response to Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6 : So it shows that Koppen and Kaczur are our weak links in the OL, and the fact that the OL is still the second best from the Playoff teams, just shows how good the others are. So get a new C and RT and we should be set for years to come.

Yeah if you want the best guy in the league at every position on your team sure what you said is true. Who has that?
What it shows is the offensive line is fine relative to the league.
Sure Koppen, and Kaczur are not as good as OUR other offensive linemen but they are better than half the leagues starting players at their positions.
The other thing it says is that we have the 2nd best guard tandem in the NFL.
It also showed Neil to grade out higher than Mankins.
What isn't shown their but I did check into is that Connolly does not grade out even close to Neil in his limited time playing when Neil gets hurt.
It shows some obvious things like Vollmer graded out exceptionally in his time filling in for Light.
It shows that Koppen is twice as good at run bocking as he is at pass blocking.
It also shows that I did not have the time or energy to finish breaking down the Offensive Tackle details for run and pass blocking. :)
It however does not allow for context to who each player faced as competition across from them. There is no weighting system for strength of opponent that I could tell.
Bottom line is that collectively the unit grades out very favorably and the 2 weaker players are still as good as or better than half the leagues starters at their respective positions.
When I get some additional time I will put together some other positional groupings to compare with the playoff elites.
