It comes down to opportunity cost. What are we missing out on if we pick one thing over another?

Based on a choice between a DE and a WR in the first round, let’s say Solomon Thomas vs Corey Davis.

If we select Thomas over Davis are there other options at WR in the following rounds? Actually yes, quite a few, and there are plenty of high quality WR that are found in rounds 2 – 4.

If we select Davis at 19, will there be any good DE available in the following rounds? Not really.

It all depends on who’s available, but if a stud DL is available in round 1, it’s more tempting to go that route since this draft is very deep with WR, especially in the 2nd – 3rd round tier.

Otherwise though, I’m all for getting the best available talent when you can and not gambling on missing out.
