It's BPA 100% of the time for Dorsey and I like that.
As for the Decision Lens, knowing he uses it really doesn't tell us anything. Without knowing what he enters in as the most important attributes or how he ranks the categories it's pretty much useless to us.
I think that sucks balls, especially if your board sucks.
You end up as the Detroit Lions. Receiver, receiver, receiver, receiver...
There should be some level of Need considered as well. Ford, because you have Hali and Houston, was a waste. Same with the Murray pick. Same with Thomas. Unless you are absolutely sure you are sending one of these guys into free agency after the 2014 season these were absolutely redundant picks that netted the Chiefs close to zero for the 2014 season.
So, now, the Chiefs still have the same gaping holes at OL and WR and S that they had to start the 2014 off-season because Dorsey decides to stick to BPA no questions asked and ends up with a bunch of backups, special teamers or IR qualifiers at positions that were some of the deepest on the team (OLB, QB, RB).
To me, it was a complete waste of a draft simply because Dorsey stuck to whatever information was given to him by his scouts and the Decision Lens system versus attempting to get the best player available as it related to team need.
