Looks that way, for sure.

Hard to keep the shelves stocked, though, when you draft around 6 or 7 players every draft....yet you've got 11 starters on offense and 11 on defense.

Takes around 4 years of drafts to create an 11-man offense and an 11-man defense....if you started from scratch and used only a standard NFL draft, counting one guy per round over tje course of a 7-round draft. 7 players multiplied by 3 years = 21 players, one shy of a full O and full D.

And that's just for 22 starters. Still need 31 more 2nd stringers etc.

The logistics of fielding a truly GREAT team in the NFL is crazy.
