Given all the talk and desire for a fixed running game, I figured I'd dive a little into the RB's taken in the first round over the last 10 years. The format is by year and I put who the Steelers selected that season next to the year just for reference.
I also touch on some players that I would like in place of some of these RB's but I didn't want to redraft and say "well this 6th rounder is the best of all the RB's taken" because nobody would pick that guy come draft day. So for the early firsts I tried to pick guys around that range and for the late firsts I dipped a little into the second rounders who could have been considered fringe firsts.
2011 -- Cameron Heyward
• Mark Ingram (1.28) – Steelers would select some DE named Cameron Heyward three picks later. I would be happy with that pick at 1.28 just as much as 1.31. Saints would not exercise his 5th year option but WOULD resign him between years 4 and 5 to another 4 year deal, which he would play out. Worth a first? Not too sure. Ingram just is so ho hum. Cam Heyward is no doubt the better pick here.
2012 -- David DeCastro
• Trent Richardson (1.3) – Steelers would go on to select All-Pro Guard David DeCastro 21 picks later. Could also have had someone like Don’t’a Hightower or Chandler Jones at 1.3 instead of Trent. He would be traded by the Browns to Indy at the beginning of his sophomore season. 5th year option not exercised, wouldn’t play another NFL down. 0/10 would recommend.
• Doug Martin (1.31) – Mitchell Schwartz and Derek Wolfe are the next two players taken that panned out. Bobby Wagner is the best player taken after either of these two picks. 5th year declined, but would sign a 5 year extension with the Bucs but gets suspended and eventually waived for PEDs. One season in Oakland after that. Questionable, but I’d rather have Schwartz.
• David Wilson (1.32) – I’ve honestly never even heard of this dude. He has 500 career rushing yards. I don’t need to add much to that. Not worth the pick.
2013 -- Jarvis Jones
• No first round RBs taken. Steelers would get Le’Veon Bell in the 2nd round, objectively the best RB in that class. Gio Bernard was taken 11 picks earlier than Lev.
2014 -- Ryan Shazier
• Two years in a row no RB’s taken in the first. Tough sledding. James White, Carlos Hyde, Devonta Freeman are the three most successful RB’s from this class.
2015 -- Bud Dupree
• Todd Gurley (1.10) – Probably the tricki... keep reading on reddit ➡
How the heck do we find out our wage scale? No one I work with knows theirs and my manager “doesn’t have that information”.
Let’s say we take a qb this year. We’ve got them cheap for the next 4-5 years. Nice. Way to go. Except that it is a really bad idea. About the time we are getting the team built around him we’ve got to break the bank for him, hampering our ability to surround him with quality talent. Instead, we build a killer team around Goff and then get a franchise qb on the cheap for 4 years which allows us to surround him with amazing talent for that run. Taking a qb this early in the rebuild process wastes the majority of that cheap first contract.
|Year||AFC||Cap Hit %||NFC||Cap Hit %|
|2015||Peyton Manning||11.70%||Cam Newton||8.70%|
|2016||Tom Brady||8.60%||Matt Ryan||15%|
|2017||Tom Brady||8.30%||Wentz + Foles||4.30%|
Jimmy G has the highest cap hit of any starting QB in the super bowl the last 10 years, with Matt Ryan close behind.
Five QBs have made the Super Bowl on their rookie contracts. Russell Wilson has done it twice.
Cam and Flacco were both on the fifth year option of their rookie deals. Their cap hit was about half a typical starting QB abut about twice your average rookie.
I Added Carson Wentz and Nick Foles's salary for the purpose of this discussion. They both played an integral role in the Eagles Super Bowl run.

If I look at a local union, IBEW for example I can easily find the wage scale, how can I find it for the SIU? I'm trying to figure out if it's feasible with my current cost of living.
I’ve been looking into the new stimulus proposal and noticed the $15 minimum wage increase. If it goes through then theoretically GS 1-3s would all be at $15, and GS 4s would be sitting at $15.10. Or I could be completely off. Also contractors would have to pay more livable wages, so it seems like a win-win.
In y’all’s opinion how would the feds integrate this new proposal?
Also how would this change funding for seasonal?

Hello all, this is my first release as a game developer. It seemed to do quite well on itch (better than I expected!) so I thought I should post it here too.
Mesonis is a game inspired by Risk, except it takes place in space and you get to take part in the battles to control the outcome.
There are two ship variants, and proc gen maps for unlimited playthroughs.
💻: Supports PC, controller and mobile (just about)
If you love the project and want to see more, or want access to the fully commented code to learn how it ticks, then consider leaving a donation! Feedback is also extremely useful since I'm starting out.
Many thanks and I hope you enjoy!
From the lens of a business owner, if I had to pay more to minimum wage workers my options are:
a) cut costs enough to offset this increase
b) raise revenue enough to offset this increase or
c) accept lower profitability
For certain small businesses, like restaurants, the short-term reaction is an increase in prices. However, over the long-term could it possibly stagnate the low-wage workers who at one point were valued above minimum wage? For workers making $15-20 per hour, may they see lower and/or less frequent raises over time (along with doing the same job but having a smaller value gap between them and minimum wage workers)?
Anyone else not seeing their wage on people central?
Also is there anywhere to look up the pay scale for my position. Looking for certified tech and senior tech in dallas texas are if anyone is able to help.
Our minimum wage is $14.25
$14.25 x 40 = $570 $50 x 40 = $2000 $80 x 40 = $3200
(Of course these are all before tax)
So lets say a $200 fine for being a dick and speeding:
$200 of $570 = 35% $200 of $2000 = 10% $200 of $3200 = 6%
...nobody else sees a flaw here? You're literally punished less for the exact same thing if you make more money. The richer you are the less you're punished the poorer you are the more harshly you're punished. I'm not at all saying you should decrease the fines if you make less money. But this system is absolutely fucked.
How are you paid? Is one better than the other? Is one more limiting? Are there other options?
Or is this too broad of a question that depends more on the agency?
