I don't agree. But that IS one way of assigning value.
I'll give you another.
Revis is a sure-fire Hall of Fame player, the best at his position in the NFL.
Smith is a JAG QB, the equivalent of many players that come out every year in the draft.
It may not be possible to "replace" a Revis.
Smith can be replaced every year, any year, by almost any top-three-round QB.
