In the top 10 outside of QB, you are picking the best or second player at that position that year. So the BPA is just what they are at a position of need. If Poe is your best DT in your mind you pick him at 9 with no hesistation. If on the other hand you think he is simlar in talent to someone you can get later on or you have questions, you go in a different direction.
Top 10 you heavily factor in BPA...just bc you need a DT doesn't mean you can justify pick
It is like the Armanti pick... he went too high. Just bc you like a guy doesn't mean you can justify picking him anywhere. That is amplified at the top of the draft...you can't just ignore all the players who are better there.
Only people comparing him to Ngata are choosing to ignore how they actually PLAYED in college.
If someone drafted the Oregon DT at 10 last year that would have been dumb. Can't ignore BPA for need and opt on some guy who didn't prove much on a football field when looking at the top 10.
People are too busy comparing this kid to players he doesn't compare to
This is not like Edwards at all. Edwards was a quarterback who didn't have the measurable to play that position in the NFL and we tried to make into something else. Poe is a DT who is an underclassmen with extreme atleticism and strength who didn't play as well as he should have. Even trying to draw a comparison is ridiculous.
As for who is comparing him to Ngata??? Mayock said it at the combine. Brian Billick tweeted it. I would say Mayock did see him play and still likes him. Maybe he knows something you don't???
