agreed, the whole concept BPA is a myth

Every pick is a judgement of value (so BPAishness), need, fit and possibly some external risk factors (character issues, injury history etc). And all these things need to be judged with every pick. Should the Colts draft Geno Smith if he happens to fall and he is the top prospect available. Hell no. Should my saints draft a running back in the first round if that guy is on top of their board. Hell no. But at the same time you should not restrict yourself to a single position (except maybe QB).

I don't know. I think teams lose their mind over certain prospects and literally go BPA if that certain person falls.

Last year, for instance, we went Gilmore in top 10. I think we did what some of you are referring to with the fact that he was valued high on our board to begin with, but at the same time he had that value because of our need at CB.

But for the year we took Spiller @ 8 - we definitely just went BPA regardless of need. We had BeastMode and FJax and had no need for Spiller as our 1st rnd pick but we did it anyways because he fell to us.

You are going CB still?
Yes, if the MLB is the #1 player on my board and the CB is within the top 3-5 players on my board. But my point is, the odds of that MLB being higher than the highly rated CB on that team's board is unlikely....unless it's a case of the LB really falling. Or unless that MLB can fill a need at one of the other LB spots.
