I can only assume DP was the BPA from their draft board, and that the organization values getting what they consider to be the best player higher than trying to address a perceived organizational weakness that we have no idea if it will still be a weakness by the time the player in question is ready for the big league.

Also, although "we" might consider there to be little separating the players, there may be a large difference between the players on the individual team boards.
