I hear fans on the internet, and a lot of them here talking about how Ted Thompson drafts, 'The BPA, regardless of position.' And honestly I don't even know what that means. General managers and coaches who make draft picks do all the same things. They grade the players, they rank them, and then they determine who's a fit, and go off that list. Ted Thompson doesn't really do anything differently than any other decision maker in football, well he tends to make better decisions, but fundamentally he's no different. This notion that Ted Thompson drafts 'BPA' and that it's somehow unique, or a certain draft style is absurd. Everyone drafts their own 'BPA'. Just because a team takes a player 18th in the draft and Mel Kiper has him ranked 45th, it doesn't mean a team reached a need, all these teams have players ranked differently... You can look through EVERY draft pick in a draft and say, 'That pick fit a need for them'. There's not a pick in the draft that isn't a need in some fashion. Ted Thompson has NEVER made a selection that didn't correct some need on our roster. I just don't understand some of this language when it comes to the draft, just wanted to discuss it.
