I don't mean to say that the entire concept of 'value' is dead; what I mean is that the idea of draft slotting and the inherent value of THAT is completely irrelevant now.
No LT is worth more than a plus player at QB. None. So that 89 QB is worth much, much more than that 95 LT.
I kind of set my baseline for plus player at QB as being Andy Dalton. He's sort of what I consider the leastmost of the plus Qb's. You can win with that guy. He's probably like the 10th or 11th or 12th best QB in the league. It's tough to win with lesser guys.
Andy Dalton is worth much, much more than Joekel to a team that has no QB. Much more.
So I think as you're setting up for the draft, the question is, does your team have a QB that is at LEAST as good as Andy Dalton? No? Then you take the best QB available. No other player at any position will matter more. None. If you take a swing and the player busts, it's no longer a franchise killer financially due to the CBA. Take a chance. If it doesn't work out, try again next year.
