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?


We could also look at last year as well....they had a S higher than than some pretty high rated CBs, WRs, and DTs. Was Barron that good or was what they viewed as a need influencing it.

Bpa at a position of need. If the highest ranked player on the board played is a Center, QB, MLB , or RB we'd pass

99% of mocks look at needs.

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


Need doesn't shape BPA, that is the point of true BPA. You pick the BPA regardless of position or need,

As for mocks looking at needs, I guess that is why they usually get our pick wrong outside of Newton,

Gettleman's BPA may be different from everyone else's BPA. And don't trust those mock drafts. They based everything on needs for every teams.

BPA: Star, Fisher, Warmack, Patterson, Vaccaro, Dion Jordan

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??


I brought this up the other day P55. I was giving the hypothetical of Barkley or Geno dropping to our pick and say we have them as BPA.

Do we draft a QB? Seems like a wasted pick

What if the BPA is a RB in the second round. Do we invest in another RB? Or ILB? etc.

I think you have to strike a balance. BPA at a position of need unless the value on a player is too high to pass on. But that wouldn't likely happen in the first round. That would be a situation where you may have a second round grade on a guy still around in the 4th or something like that.

So to answer your question I think there has to be a balance of sorts. But who knows what Gettleman is going to do. We will find out in a couple of months

Based on what Gettleman says about big men and touchdown scorers, we will take the BPA out of D-line, O-line, and WR... don't see us taking Vacarro if he is there. So here's to hoping Star, Warmack, or Patterson make it to 14. That would be a terrific decision to have to make.

Gettleman saying we're going to go BPA is a complete smokescreen.

In reality, we're actually going to take the WPA (worst player available)

Nobody is gonna see that coming.

I believe in this case, he means it. If there is a pass rusher there, we'll more than likely take him. For example sasy Ziggy ansah, if he's there. I wouldn't put it past him to pull the trigger.

I don't believe it will be the case after the 1st round though.
