I've been meaning to make this thread for a few days. I've been debating this idea of positional value (specifically in relation to the Bears' pick). So, I'm looking for some other opinions. Do you believe in positional value? Do you think positional value should override a best player available approach? Is positional value something that should be taken in to account when constructing a big board?
For example, I would consider Chance Warmack a better overall prospect than Lane Johnson. But, Warmack is a pure OG. So, even though I think Warmack is a better overall prospect I think I would be leery of taking him at 20, but I would take Lane Johnson.
I don't have any statistical research and in a quick google search I didn't find any articles I liked. But, if you have any research I would like to see it.
