Drafting Best Player Available vs. Getting a Player We Need
We hear most people say "get the best player available" in the draft when you pick. But think about that.
In the first few rounds of the draft, say 1st, 2nd & our 4th round picks, if the best player available is at a position where we're not needing help, do we go with our needs (like oline or MLB) or do we just grab the best player available? We could end up with a guy who we really don't need.
Think this one through. What if it's a RB or WR, and we end up NOT getting a stud guy we need? Keep in mind that the free agents are not heavily stocked with great talent at some positions this year, so it may not be an option to backfill through FA.
Kind of like "if you snooze you lose" & we may be screwed until next year.
