That's just my opinion.
People had this same argument when we first started drafting high in 2007. Each year it was "we need someone who can step in right away". I don't care how long it takes the player to come into the league. Even if its 4 years and he turns out to be the BPA then that's what I want. Jones Is the BPA and we would be insanely lucky to even have a chance at drafting him.
