Dwain McFarland does plenty of great stuff for Pro Football Focus -- and, once upon a time, for DraftSharks.com. We especially like his utilization reports and his ability to put what we're seeing into proper context. So we brought Dwain on primarily to react to some of the key things that got revealed in the 1st full round of preseason games. But we also hit on some more general draft strategies and even answered some viewer questions. You'll want to take it all in.

Here's the rundown ...
