    The draft question-Best player or need?

    I have been roving around the team sites, as draft weekend is approaching.

    I have several friends coming over for the draft, and everyone talks about needs.

    I seem to be in the minority, in that I think most of the time it is better for a team to draft best player available. The only time I would disagree (and even then, I have reservations) is when a team can legitamately compete for the superbowl. When I say that, I am talking about a team that is widely regarded as a top team in their respective conference.

    Generally, I think a team is better off taking the best player available. Here is MY logic:

    1)-In a few years if you draft best player available, you have a tradeable commodity.

    2)-A team can always use a good player, even if it is not a position of need.

    3)-No one can tell who might get injured throughout a season.

    There are more arguements, and I would like to hear them. For my favorite team, drafting for need has not worked out well (Carpenter, Spears, ect.)


    So...can I get some opinions? Is drafting for need overrated?????

    personally i am more fond of taking BPA to an extent. theres alway a couple positions on most teams where you just dont consider drafting. but as a hole im more for bpa.

        It is always a mixture of philosophies IMHO. I say you take the player that is most better than the one you've got starting at the position the prospect is playing.

          I go subscribe to the Hybird philosophy where you draft the BPA that fits your top 5 needs

                Not if you have LT already on your team.

                  Okay, LT is the exception. I might admit that.

                    I heard there is a rumor that the Chargers might take a RB to replace Turner in the first round like a week ago but I havent heard anything since so I dont know.

                    I say if your sitting there with McFadden there and You have LT you still take him, That would be a Sick Duo. So I still say BPA on Day One.

                      BPA has always been the theory I went by, but to a certain extent.
                      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                      “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                        Yup. BPA might be a CB, but that might be top need #4. It's still a need, so fill it with the BPA.

                          I go by the hybrid theory as described above.

                              I don't think you can go with either one PERMANENTLY. Say McFadden falls to where the Vikings are. He would obviously be the BPA, but there's no way that they should pick him.

                              Say D-Mac is there at 7 for the Pats(with no dire needs), then they would be crazy not to take him.

                              It really depends on who you think you can take later to fill a need. The Packers took Harrell last year when most people wanted a TE or RB. But it all was good in Cheesetown.

                              Picking by need is by far the riskier drafting technique.
