it can never and should never be as simple as just that.
I'm not a fan of the whole "you don't draft this position at this level" mindset. There are exceptiopns (taking a kicker at #1 overall, for example) but generally speaking, I say if you think Player X is the best guy to take at your spot, then take him.
need must be accounted for in that decision...like if the BPA is a MLB or a QB or an RB...do we really take one over DT, CB, WR, FS, etc.?
also, what is my board looking like for that position later? can i find someone of nearly equal value later? is there a thinner grouping for this position than others?
is this position as crucial for the team as others, esp. crucial enough to warrant this early selection?
there's just too many factors to take in.
