We could pick someone at #1 who is a worthy #1 overall talent. Or we could pick someone the caliber of which we could have gotten any other year drafting in the teens.
It's a difference of philosophy. Some people want us to stay in our lanes and maximize value in the draft. Some of us want to reach for positions of need.
Sometimes, either one is appropriate. Right now, because we need to change over 2/3 of the roster, I'm in favor of maximizing value.
How is it that a Left Tackle is more valuable than a QB? How is this team getting more "draft value" (whatever the **** that means) by picking a Left Tackle over a potential franchise QB?
