Just as a hypothetical:
Suppose your big, hard hitting safety is not coming around in contract talks, then maybe the BPA is
a big, hard hitting safety. Suppose you can't find anybody you have faith in as a back up quarterback,
maybe the BPA is a second round QB.
Best player available is largely a myth. It varies with each team and, mostly, with team needs.
It's something everybody talks about but very few teams do. Ozzie Newsome of the Ravens
is reputed stick with his board the most of any GM.
You have to look at team needs, why would you not. Now, agreeing what those needs are, especially
on a board like this is another thing entirely.
Try getting any three people to agree, at any point in the draft, who the BPA is.
