Because if they don't think he is smoke screening and is serious, then why is every mock draft and nearly every post talking about our needs instead of BPA. If we are taking the BPA regardless of need, then we will take the highest rated player on our board regardless of need, period.
The whole we need line help or need a WR will be irrelevent. If a DE projected at 6 for example is available at 14 and there are no other players rated higher who have dropped, then we will take him regardless of who else is out there or what our needs are??

So is Gettleman serious about BPA regardless of position or will it be the BPA at a position of need, or something else??

We always take need over BPA in the first. It will happen again this year you can bet on it.

Gettleman doesn't BS. We'll take BPA regardless of position.

99% of mocks look at needs.

BPA for each team varies as well. Need always shapes BPA.

I just don't see what the advantage would be to smokescreen. Teams ahead are ultimately going to pick who they're going to pick notwithstanding what a GM says. The teams behind you are going to do the same. Of course if you pass on a particularly tasty morsel, there will be some opportunistic vulture that will swoop in and exploit your miscalculation.

Of course you're going to take the BPA within reason...If a high caliber player that is pretty much a consensus "generational" player at a position drops to you for whatever reason---a player that is heads and shoulders above everyone else at not only their position but also light years ahead of others at their respective positions, you better take him. You can worries about the particulars later. When differences become a little more clouded, then you can start worrying about balance and depend upon your best guesstimates in regards to the value of particular players and how they will fit into your overall team/scheme and plan for success. As the draft moves into the later rounds it seems to me that it would be more about value, and finding possible diamonds in the rough to add depth and fill out your roster where there may be less obvious, but suspected issues on the horizon.

No one actually drafts pure BPA. As CRA said above, your team needs shape your board quite a bit.

It's not necessarily easy. Let's say Sheldon Richardson, Keenan Allen and Ezekiel Ansah, Kenny Vacarro and Chance Warmack are still on the board. Who do we pick?
