I really feel like that's a tough question to answer. How do you compare AJ Green's talents as a receiver to Nick Fairley's as a DT? Wouldn't "who is the biggest sure-thing in this draft?" be a better question?
If that's the question, I say Peterson or Green. Still, I don't think you take either of thsoe guys at #1.

To me the BPA is the player who has the most potential to be the best player long-term. And that's Cam Newton without question, IMO. As far as 'immediate impact' guys go, A.J. Green.

BPA is probably either Green or Peterson.

BPA is the player with the highest skill set right now, along with the potential to get better.

If we somehow acquire a 2nd rder then draft AJ Green and take the best DT in the 2nd.

If we drop a couple spots take Dareus or Newton and take Rudolph in the 2nd.

It comes down to 5 players. Newton, Bowers, Green, Peterson, Fairley

I'm going to rate them in three catagories, highest upside is the tie breaker

Highest upside:
1. Newton
2. Bowers
3. Green
4. Peterson
5. Fairley

Pro Ready:
1. Peterson
2. Green
3. Bowers
4. Fairley
5. Newton

Blow up potential:
1. Bowers
2. Newton
3. Fairley
4. Green
5. Peterson

Thus PBA is...
1. Peterson
2. Green
3. Newton
4. Bowers
5. Fairley

Looks like I just talked myself out of the Fairley camp... except if we were talking biggest need... then it would all change
