You're drafting by need instead of best player available. This is how the Falcons have drafted and look where that has gotten them.
No, the Falcons mortgaged several picks for one player, this is far from that.
Look at all of Gettleman's drafts to date:
Star, KK, KB, Ealy (our 1st and 2nd's) in sequential drafts, the year we drafted two DT's was following a season where DT was a huge need for the team. Same for KB and Ealy, we had just cut the all-time leading everything at WR and had just failed to extend Hardy, insert high pick on a DE.
Do not confuse BPA/Need matching up. Looking at our roster and draft this year and his draft history associated with NY, and most recently us BPA has also met need, I think we are positioned to follow suit again in the early rounds while matching BPA and need again.
