With apologies to Paradis, taking Pettigrew when they could have had Oher was numbskullish. All positions are not created = and a LT can have a dramatic effect on the most important player on your team (the QB)
yes. that's why it is not always a BAP philosophy, b/c some positions are more important than others. that's why i am opposed to the jets taking a guard or a safety in the first round when there will likely be players of equal value at more important positions.
