And as much as Fisher has helped his draft stock, he's still not a top 10 worthy pick. But even if he was, and we followed your logic, he'll be a top 10 right tackle trying to battle with a guy that we could have not resigned a contract with.
In essence, an absolute waste of a top 10 pick
BPA doesn't just mean guys who are talented, value of position comes into play
Should realistically be the only positions taken in the first round and in an ideal world, prioritized in that exact order. Now that's not to say that any QB should be taken over a DE, which is when talent or "BPA" is taken into account.
If you take your big board of players, say, Mike Mayock's bigboard, you prioritize players based on talent. You then shelve players that are not positions you see above, they can be taken later even if they are talented.
The list of positions that are shelved are as follows UNLESS they are once in a lifetime prospects ala. Adrian Peterson, Ray Lewis, Ray Guy, Ed Reed etc.
These positions, unless once in a generation type players, should never be considered a priority over the positions stated before. If two prospects are rated equally, for example, a guard prospect and a WR prospect, you have to take the WR.
Before i give my retort, let me congratulate for having a solid plan. Now to my retort.
I do not consider WR and CB premium positions so i have an issue drafting them in the 1st round. Now a player like Revis would be tempting to me as would a player like Megatron. The problem i have with them is the situation the Jets now have with Revis and the situation the Cardinals find themselves in with Fitzgerald nad the Lions with Megatron. You can't pay these players the type of money that they're making a field a solid team.
That type of Money is reserved for Premium position players. For me, those positions are:
DE / 43
In this coming draft the best available player at 9:
We have 2 NTs on the team and no OLmen to speak of so who should i pick.
