1) Count on the draft for ONE position of need in the current year. (TE is this year's, for me) 2) Focus on the next year, and especially on those who might be lost to retirement or free agency. Consider Chung, McCourty, Thuney, Van Noy and Jones. This makes DB a major priority, even though the defensive backfield is our great strength in 2019. 3) BPA is "correct:", but BVA is better, since the best player to us is subject the need at the position. For example, I would find unlikely that we would draft an ILB or CB at 32, unless he were clearly the BPA. 4) Double-dipping with top picks is fine at positions of great need this year or next. The draft is a crapshoot, and 2 shots are better than one. 5) Prefer team captains. 6) I ignore rounds 6 and 7 (and UDFA's), which for me are for taking a shot. Obviously, Belichick is great at this and will find us a couple of roster players, but for me there is no reason to predict positions to be picked or individual players.
