i guess i will be looking at their schedule to see who has the easiest defenses...

Some people say as a last resort they will try to use difficulty of schedule in determining who to take. I put very little emphasis on this aspect since assuming a defense will be easy to run or pass against based what they did last year is a crap shoot.

For example, only 4 of the worst 10 rushing defenses in 2002 remained one of the worst 10 in 2003 (Atlanta, Cleveland, Houston, KC). Only 3 of the top 10 rushing defenses in 2002 remained a top 10 defense in 2003 (Tenn, Miami, Denver). And 4 teams did a complete flip. Jacksonville, NE, and Buffalo went from worst 10 in 2002 to top 10 in 2003. Oakland went from 4th to last from 2002 to 2003. I would use this little example to argue that you should completely throw out the "SOS" factor when selecting your RB, WR, QB.
