NFL Draft Readiness Guide: Predominantly Orange
Weigh ‘Need vs BPA’ (Best Position Available) to draft the Best Position Available for your team. The NFL Draft is all about drafting the best position available based on the team’s need.
Analyzing which prospect at your team’s positional need is the best player available at the position.
Use your first round pick on someone who will contribute to the team in year one as a rookie.
Don’t draft a running back in the first round (unless it’s Christian McCaffrey because he can play about 10 different positions). Factor in NFL running back shelf life and sustainability at the position.
Don’t draft a prospect you like if there is more than a 50/50 shot he will be available in the next round, for example Adam Gotsis. This element can set franchises back if the pick doesn’t end up panning out.
