What "Best Player Available" means

BPAFMT

Best Player Available For My Team


I continue to see people post with the mindset that we won't take positional need into account because Dorsey said he only drafts the "Best Player Available."

Well, stop being stupid. You made me start this thread. Best Player Available and Positional Value do not have to be mutually exclusive.

To think that a GM in the NFL would blindly pass on talent at a position of need because he only drafts the most talented person in general is simplistic and you should be embarrassed for thinking that way. He wouldn't keep his job for long. (hi Scott!)

Please see below for a basic example of how a person can account for both positional need AND talent to create a list of the Best Players Available for his team:

You can develop a scoring system that takes into account:
  • Roster Need (Go 80 deep by position and depth)
  • Positional value (ranking against others of the same position and type)
  • Measurables (combine stats, height/weight, hand size)
  • Talent (body of work, performance, stats, accomplishments)
  • Risk (injury, off the field)
  • Intelligence (football IQ, general IQ)
  • Intangibles (leadership, personality, work ethic)

Grade each prospect in each area. Update your grades regularly. Compare with those you trust.

When everything is taken into account, assign a score and slot players into your big board.

When I first suggested this, Nightfyre shared his thoughts as well:

Get it? Do ya? Good. Stop being an asshole and use your brain.

People are debating on here like its ****ing Warpaint Illustrated or something.

The fact that you see in the last 2yrs very young, athletic QB guys emerge like Cam, RGIII, Wilson,Kaepernick and even Luck with Johnny Football waiting in the wings who are defying the NFL developmental 'consistent success timeline logic' makes it much much easier for Dorsey/Reid to take Geno at ONE regardless of whether he is a solid No.1 or not especially when you NEED a QB !.

How in the hell, do you not take Geno when you see guys like Cam,RGIII, Wilson, Luck and Kaepernick rise to the top knowing Geno can be every bit as good?

Heh, Trent Green wasn't drafted until the eighth round, if we drafted him in the first the fans would have been turning over cars and burning them like the L.A. riots.

Like Phobia said it took him forever to become a starter.

In fairness to Trent, he looked pretty good in 98 in Washington. Albeit, that was 5 years into his career - but well before he took off with KC.

Here's my criteria for BPA

-Is the guy a badass on the football field?
-Is the guy a not a complete asshole?
-Good work ethic?

BPA means the highest rated player imo. At #1, I think that means the BPA out of QBs, OTs, and pass rushers.
