While answering questions for our upcoming Q&A's with SB Nation, a question about the Colts gave me a chance to dig deeper into a stat from FOA 2015. The 2014 Colts only had 15.3 percent of their defensive snaps come from players they drafted. That's a very low number, but how does it compare to other teams? I compiled the 2014 numbers for offense and defense. This does not include undrafted free agents.

    Rk Defense Drafted Total Drafted%
    1 MIN 9,233 11,900 77.6%

This report is beginning to show that the yute movement is well under way in the Spielman regime with the defense being #1 overall in amount of snaps taken by homegrown players.

What are your thoughts on how the yute movement is going thus far?

9 out of the 11 starters on defense were drafted by the Vikings (Joseph and Newman being the exceptions)

offensively, 8 out of 11 starters (Wallace, Johnson and Harris)

McDermott is also an outside free agent.

so out of the starters, we've done very well and I think the future looks promising. We've built our team the way you see multiple top contending teams build themselves, although we aren't at that level yet. It's quite a contrast from what we had in 09.

Munnerlyn, assuming he's the nickel CB. Berger if he ends up playing again. Trattou might get some work.

Asiata, Ford and Sendejo were UDFAs and aren't considered "homegrown" in these stats.

true, i totally forgot about munnerlyn.

i don't think trattou will get a lot of snaps but he would be the fourth rotational player we didn't draft.


our offensive snap % should go up this year with teddy playing the full year and AP being back. also this year our offensive line was entirely drafted by us, whereas last year most of the guys filling in weren't homegrown. obviously that could change if we get more injuries to the offensive line, although we might still have guys we drafted like yankey and thompson fill in.

Oh.

I thought this was going to be a thread about Australian pick-up trucks.

I think Spielman and Co. are 1 or 2 good drafts away from being able to consistently turn the roster over via the draft à la Green Bay.

You have your 8-12 core guys and you fill out the rest out with draft picks and strategic signings. The key part of this, of course, is Teddy developing into a franchise QB.

While not directly Vikings-related, but it was part of the Yute movement because of a trade involving the Vikings, is there going to be any other high draft pick that flamed out faster than Trent Richardson? He's not even likely going to make the Raiders roster and will have failed for 3 teams in just over 3 years.

It's why I would avoid Alabama running backs. They tend to be out of gas by the time they get to the NFL.

So, stay away from Derrick Henry then? Check. Wink

Henry looks like a stud in college, there's no denying that, but so did Richardson and Ingram, but they've done very, very little since getting to the NFL.

Ingram has definitely come around, but he needs to stay healthy. Lacy is a very good back as well.

Alabama running backs are better draft picks than their corners.

I don't think there is any doubt that Speilman has done an above average job drafting, that our scouts are doing well, and our coaching staff is methodical with coaching up players. Any time you can fill out a large part of the roster with home grown talent, you have a very strong base to be consistently successful in the NFL. As stated by another person earlier, another year or two of this, and we will probably be able to contend on a consistent basis. We have gotten a lot of value out of the early rounds, and found backups and contributors in the late rounds. That is all you can ask for from a front office. I am very very pleased.

Just looking at the first round picks under Spielman

Matt Kalil
Harrison Smith
Sharrif Floyd
Xavier Rhodes
Cordarrelle Patterson
Anthony Barr
Teddy Bridgewater
Trae Waynes

Of that list, five are major contributors, one made the Pro Bowl (Kalil), one is TBD (Waynes) and one flat out bad pick. That's a pretty good record so far.
