If the best player available to us is at OLB, then we draft that guy. If it's Safety, then we take that guy. Same with OL or DL.
What if it's CB or QB?
I think need is always considered and plays a role. I think it plays no role in later rounds and a small role in the first 2. I don't think teams completely disregard need outright.
