bpa... a do whatever it takes can be a problem cause ANYONE can be a bust, and you do what it takes and it doesn't work out, it hurts that much more...

Always BPA, but I'm a fan of trading down if there's a guy you really want a few slots below where you are. Not a fan of trading up. Draft picks are the key to the universe.

Depends if we address QB in free agency. If we dont, we HAVE to get one with our first or second pick IMO.

It depends on what our needs are and who's there when we pick. If we need a QB and when we pick, Young, Leinert, and Cutler are all gone, then you're not going to REACH for a QB that's graded lower just because we need that position. At that point of course you go for BPA. And yes, our needs will be better known after free agency...

I'm just a "draft that 6'5 mobile quarterback with a gun who just wins almost all his games" kinda draft philosophy.

I am now a guy who says best value.

But as for Saban, he will have his board, he will have it all lined up with what he thinks is there value overall no matter what position, then the draft plays out and he picks the best guy on his board that has either dropped down for whatever reason, or is the guy who is right where he has them on his board. One also has to consider that he wanted RB over Caddy, which tells me, all things equal, what can you do in my system that has the biggest need? We need protection of the QB and get into a more powerful passing game. Henceforth, Ronnie Brown. We allowed one of the fewest sacks this year. Ronnie Brown was a huge plus on this.

So Saban will get his man in a Channing Crowder who everyone else passed on. Matt Roth ect. and he will make them into what he knows he can. Players.

BPA. You go after need, and there is a tendency to reach... sometimes far. Ask our old friend Wanny. (Fletcher, Eddie Moore. YIKES!)

i hate when people say that... fletcher was not a need pick... we didn't need a corner, we had pat and sam, and didnt we have terrence shaw, and we had just drafted ben kelly the year before... fletcher was in no way a need, maybe a reach (eventhough he was a top corner prospect, thorpe winner, etc), but not a need pick

and moore wasnt need either, we had zach, just got seau, and had a young greenwood, wouldn't have called that a need either...

yes they were bad picks, but not need picks...

I was thinking this was an interesting question today in the aftermath of the game last night... Sooooo many are saying they would give their right arm (and first born) to draft Vince after his performance last night.... Yet look at the replies... The overwhelming majority so far are BPA (I am too by the way)... Interesting. :D

Best Talent on the board when we pick, or trade down if the guy we want is gone.
