The BPA isn't always so easy. You're looking at players who are mainly 17 and 18 years old - and trying to project what they'll become. Maybe if you're picking at the very top of the draft the bpa is easy to identify - but if you're picking 15-30 (which is where the hawks will be picking for the foreseeable future) it's more complicated.
