This is it in a nut shell. You work FA to fill a few needs and then take BPA on the list of needs left. You also have to consider the strength of the draft in up coming rounds if players are close as BPA. For example one of our needs is a WR since Britt is a moron and in his last year, DWill is also in his final year and Nate is getting up in age and expensive. But you might pas on a WR if you think you can get close to the same value n round 2 or 3. I'm also a big fan of taking trench guys early if the value is there. Really, who knows what FA will bring. Say we sign a guy like Bennett at DE. We have Morgan who is probably a keeper after his contract runs out and WImbley for maybe one more year. So DE isn't high on the list anymore if on the list at all. If we sign Levitre do we still consider an OG in round one or even the first three rounds? Another concern that nobody mentions is we have two OTs that will be in their last season next year. Do we consider an OT fairly early? Either way we need to spend the 20 mil or so on two or three solid players to fill needs. And we need to sign guys that are in the 26-27 yr old range. Otherwise those positions just become needs again in a year or so. Also, the way the draft looks to me I'd entertain trading down to get an extra pick or two. That is unless we need one of the top DEs. That akes it easier to get OG/C, S, RB and WR or DT in the first three rounds that can step up right away and help.
