Value is far from obsolete. The issue is people like Kiper and McShay really don't know shit when it comes to determining what teams actually consider to be values and reaches and also don't really consider player x holds a lot more value in system y instead of z.
They honestly don't care if drafting another lineman for a team that has absolutely ****ing nothing at QB is ridiculous, because uh hey dis grossly underpaid or not paid at all intern gave slapdick takcle a 95 grade while whatever top grade QB only got a 89 grade.
Than this shit goes to the moon because a lot of Chiefs fans are literally ****ing retarded and think Martyball is the way to go. Value is still a great and relevant thing, but there has to be logic to it. Kiper and McShay thinking the worst team with 0 QB's need to draft linemenz has no logic, while just sittin back and getting great value in ways that make sense like the Giants actually does.
Once people realize the Chiefs were the worst team in professional football and that they really can't be afforded the luxury of just going for that sweet value, rational general discussion will take place. Judging by the fact that many think the best solution is to "fix" Matt Cassel, it'll never happen.
