    You always balance need with BPA. No one really goes all BPA despite what they say.

    Frankly if a guy is ranked 16th in that round and he is a need then you trade down some.

    But as long as he is rated as being worthy of that round pick why is it a reach?

    If the guy can play that is all that matters.

    This VALUE bull**** is just that. Is the guy a first rd pick? Yes or no.
    Is the guy a second round pick? Yes or no. As long as the answer is a yes then pick him.

    "Value bull****". That's a new one.

    It's a reach because he's not the best player on your board per the scouting department you hire to make those determinations. You are reaching around a better player to fill a need. It's pretty much the worst way you can run your draft.

    I had rather get rid of the zone blocking scheme and Callahan if it means Warmack wouldn't fit. I liked DeCastro last year due to his fit in the ZBS, but Cordy Glenn and Osemele were more of the type of linemen I would like to see. I like power smashmouth football. To.hell with the finesse stuff.

    i'd like to move down, grab another 3rd, take Dion Jordan then move back into the bottom of round 1 and take Jonathan Cooper(wishful thinking!)

    Burm you realize the Chiefs dont have a choice. No way they can trot Cassel and Quinn out there next year and expect anybody to show up. They have to sell hope. I would not pick him number one but it will probably happen.

    aT 16 Warmack is arguably the BA on the board and fills a need.

    Yep, good point. Don't scoff at Geno 1st overall. QBs are always over drafted. Maybe the Chiefs can trade down a little and still get him.

    What if the CB Dee Milliner falls to #16 and the Cowboys have him rated as the BPA?

    IT is BS. all this crap about 'reaches'

    Is the guy considered a pick worthy of that round? YES OR NO.

    If he is and he is in a position of need versus slightly higher ranked players at positions of strength then take him.

    IF your draft board is correct then the players all should help you.

    How do you compare worth of a DB vs a TE vs a WR vs a OT or OG?
    You really cannot.

    I'm a huge proponent of the BPA drafting philosophy, but that doesn't mean automatically selecting the top remaining player on your board. You have to consider what the team needs too, and use trades to maximize the talent you can get to fill your holes. Womack is widely being graded as a top-5 player in this draft. How would he not be a "value" selection in the mid-teens?
