In response to mbeaulieu07's comment:
I want them to take the best players available and I think Pryor would be just that, if he were to make it to #29... which I don't think he will.
I agree and don't agree with the BPA philosphy. Personally I want the BPA that will make the most impact and fits the team best. Right now given the secondary and given the front 7 pass rush, imo the pass rush would be the bigger impact. So, if a player who can come in and start right away on the DL and enhance or pass rush is available I would put them priority over Pryor even if individually Pryor is the better player. But, if the difference is vast (ie D. Jones vs Pryor) then you have to get Pryor at that point. But, S isn't as big of a need for me at this point vs TE or DL. If DL or TE was deeper this year I would wait and grab Pryor however, both are shallow with a small handful of good players upfront then the rest is a major drop off after the first 4-5 people.
Good post. I agree. I think that it is likely that the BPA at 29 will in fact be a TE/DT/LB or DE. I'm quite confident that BB will be able to land a very good player at that point that will fill a need for the team. Nix/Tuitt/Hageman/Attaochu/Ford/Shazier/Mosely/ASJ/Niklas/etc could all potentially be there, and could all potentialy be considered the BPA depending on how they are being evaluated. Pryor will be long gone, IMO, so comparing him is kind of a mute point, but I see what you are saying.
