BF-51 will like this part:

According to my estimations, Hackett is the second-best free-agent wide receiver on the market this offseason. I actually had him ranked in front of Berrian after doing a study of their YPA productivity over the past three years.

His attempt to mitigate Reeves' suckitude is quite laughable. It seems rather obvious that if you wipe away a handful of the big plays that any corner gave up, their YPA will drop accordingly. The bottom line is that the guy did give up those big plays, and they matter just as much as any big plays that everybody else allowed.

I think the value with Reeves lies in the fact that he is now battle tested as a starting corner, and does have pretty good physical tools with his speed and whatnot. Starting experience at that position is invaluable. For a team like the Texans, he is probably a better option than potentially having to start a rookie or pay a fortune for a more reputable corner.

First of all, very good post. Very solid points all around. Secondly, I was thinking exactly the same thing in regards to how he came to the conclusion that Reeves was a good CB. Especially considering that Reeves was not a full-time player for the Cowboys (unless I'm sorely mistaken), to take away any amount of his statistics would greatly skew the results due to a small sample size. In essence, Joyner is taking an already small sample size and making it smaller--notice that he mentions 3 games. Out of a 16 game season, that's 19% of the games (or almost 1/5), and, again, for a non-starter, to take those away is to cheapen the value of his stats.

If health wasn't an issue, Hackett would be one of the best overall FAs on the market.

However I really hate KC Joyner. Like it was said before, he just takes away certain factors to fit what he wants to say. You can't take away coverage sacks.

Either way now, Hackett is the best WR in FA, and I am surprised he is still available. I would have thought he would have been signed some time between Sunday and Tuesday, but its Thursday, and he is still around.

i think his injury concerns are being blown out of proportion. it wasnt a torn acl or mcl or something like turf toe that lingers. it was just a bad ankle. probably the easiest of injuries to overcome.

Sometimes ankles are worse than an ACLs. Short term no, but long term yes. When you have bad ankles you are prone to spraining them over and over again. I'm not sure the same applies to an ACL. That seems more random.

The injury concerns aren't because of a bad ankle, it's because he's had some inor injury that's kept him out of atleast a few games every year he's been in the NFL. He's on the injury report almost every week.

I've been wondering aloud why Hackett hasn't been more desired by teams as a FA. It probably is the durability concerns in all likelihood, but he's very effective when healthy. He runs good routes, including in the red zone.

I don't think he's someone to chase after. He's just decent, if he goes to a team like Chicago or Minnesota he'll become invisible. He needs a good quarterback, he has to go somewhere where he can be just part of an offense and not the guy carrying it.

I refuse to accept his evaluation of Drayton Florence after he said that Jacques Reeves was underrated.

Thanks.

Reeves really was a full-time player who did start the majority of Dallas' games this past year though. Between the injuries to Henry and Newman, he ended up starting 13 games on the left side.
