I thought Lafell got pretty good money compared to Captain and Ginn. This stuff is so confusing. It's easier to just wait and see. But these picks are great for picking up offensive lineman with question marks or special teams players.
Captain got the most money all of the 3 average-wise. In fact LaFell is the one with the cheapest contract out of the 3. The difference isn't very big so that's why they all are valued as 6th round players.
Could see LaFell netting us more than Mitchell. Very possible he ends with 1,000 yards after the Super Bowl in addition to his 7 TDs.
Perfomance is a big myth in the comp picks formula. The NFL doesn't have a way to determine if a said WR played better than a LB, they don't have something tangible to determine that: it's all about the money. Mitchell got 5M/year while LaFell only got 3M/year putting them in different tiers so there's no way LaFell net us a better pick than Mitchell (or one in the same round for that matter).
Now the NFL could use something like % of snaps played to arrange players in the same tier, that's why i think LaFell will have better value than Ginn despite signing a cheaper contract. Doesn't matter one bit since they still have a 6th round value and Cotchery will cancel one of the 2.
