He also added that they will shy away from prospects that are graded too far apart...in other words if the two players are 1-3 slots away from each other as far grades they will take position of need. If they are like 5-10 slots away from each other they will take BPA because they don't want to reach.
A strategy that I totally agree with. Stick to the board, don't reach for some player just cause you need it, we need talent by any means necessary and the draft is where you get it. Cut an older player (we got a long list of them), let one walk (got a long list of them too), and get the young talented player with a cheap contract in there to play.
We could do this with every position group on this team which is why our draft is wide open to any position group.
