I think he's gotten turned around trying to make the point that you shouldn't rely on draft picks to address immediate needs because you may pass on better talent in the process and the player might not even be ready to contribute right away leaving the need still open.
Personally I believe players taken in first couple of rounds can indeed address immediate needs, but it's usually better to go with an average free agent to meet the immediate need and let the draft stay true to the available talent.
