The correct formula is BPA at a position of need.

We don't need a QB (Wentz), DT (Cox, Jernigan), S (Jenkins, McLeod), RB (Ajayi, Clement), TE (Ertz), or OL (Peters/Vaitai, Wizniewski, Kelce, Brooks, Johnson) in round one. Later rounds would be fine.

We'd need a DE if Curry is traded and Long isn't back, LB if Bradham or Kendricks goes, CB if we're not convinced and WR if Smith is cut.

So we're not locked into just one position.


That's how you get into trouble. If all of our starters are coming back how do you define position of need? At 32 you're not drafting a guy who can start for you anyway in almost all cases. We drafted Agholor to start and it took him until year 3 to be decent.

You don't think a LB selected at 32 could be the starting #3 LB for base defense--Kendrick's replacement? I think that LB would be on the field for 30% of the snaps. They had former 7th rounder Joe Walker in that role for a while after the injury to Hicks.

Jordan Matthews, a high 2nd rounder, was productive as a rookie slot WR. Officially that is not a starter but an active role.

If they select a RB at 32, I assume Smallwood or Pumphrey would get cut and the rookie would assume Smallwood's role.

Probably not. It didn't work out very well at 15 the last time that we drafted for need there (Marcus Smith). Johnson and Cox are the only 2 first rounders that I can think of in the last decade that started from day 1 and Johnson went #4. Even Aggie and Graham took 3 years to develop. Then you have The Fireman.....
