Best Player Available For UsJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsWith the draft on the horizon, some old battles start to be fought within many draft fans. Do we go BPA (Best Player Available) or do we go with need. I think it is time we do away with both and make a unified front that includes both and much more. When I think of BPA right now, I think, “who is the best, most NFL ready player available?” Right this minute, I would say the BPA is Quinnen Williams. But does that make him the BPAFU(Best Player Available For Us)? I don’t believe it does. The other factors that should be figured into the equation are...CeilingsMiddle GroundNeedMiscellaneous RiskWhen the Jets go on the clock, I am fully expecting the choices in front of to be Quinnen Williams and Josh Allen. For the sake of simplicity, I will use them as comparisons and leave out Bosa. Now let’s say we live in a vacuum and weren’t factoring the above 4 elements. We would be choosing the player that is BPA. At this point in their development, Q is a fair amount ahead of Josh Allen. Allen does a lot very well, but could still stand to develop his game. This is most evident in his pass rushing and run defense. He is a terror when he attacks the outside using his length, burst and suppleness. What he lacks is consistency with inside counters and speed to power progressions. Q on the other hand is pretty flawless. BPA goes to WilliamsThe next factorial to dive into the formula is ceiling. Both players have elite traits, and elite ceilings. I don’t like using player comparisons for determining ceilings, and instead will just use predictive stats based on top tier players in the league. If Q hits his ceiling, I can see his AVG production looking something like If Allen hits his ceiling, I can see his AVG production looking something likeThis kind of production would be more than welcome on this team. If I were to look at each stat line without a name or position, I would have a hard time picking a favorite. Since I can’t Blake Cashman Jersey Boys , I won’t. I will call this one a draw.Again, the chances of a player hitting their ceilings aren’t very good. Even though Q is more polished and more likely to hit his ceiling, there is still a greater chance that he doesn’t. Where we should be placing our bets is on the next tier down. This is where we should see some separation between the two groups. As far as production goes the top tier interior guys can put up just as much if not more than the edge group. The problem interior guys have is that the top tier is pretty small, and the drop-off is drastic. The edge group has few elites and then gradually descends to the 2nd tier. In 2018, only 11 IDL players had more than 50 pressures. The edge group more than doubled that with 27. Only 6 IDL guys had 10 or more sacks. The Edge group had 21. For the positions they play, if they both do fall into the next tier, Allen is more likely to be productive than Q. A top 15 IDL is more likely to be a 45 pressure, 6 sack guy where a top 15 edge is more likely to be a 60 pressure, 11 sack guy. I am giving the middle ground to Allen.Next up is need. I don’t like using the draft to fill immediate needs. It stinks of poor free agent management and desperation. The ideal way to attack need is to find immediate starters in free agency and then draft the BPAFU to be depth or eventually take over for the interim starters. At this point right now. We have .5 starting edge guys on the team. That is pretty sad. There is still time to change that, but time and options are running out. Going into the draft, we could be in the unfortunate position of looking for astarter at edge. We have 3 starting quality players along the interior, including 2 top 20 pass rushers. If Macc and the gang don’t plan on bringing Leo back next year, then the long-term need goes up for Q. I am not going to pretend to know their intentions for Leo though, so I won’t try. When it comes to need, Allen gets the nod.Neither player has any known off the field issues to worry about. The only minor thing that can be thrown into the miscellaneous risk category is that Q only has 1 year of production. It’s not a huge concern to me, but in comparison, Allen has that prototypical production curve that you like to see. Was he just a 1 year wonder Youth Joe Namath Jerseys , probably not, but still something to consider. With Allen, there is the fact that he still has some development to be catch up to where Williams is, polish wise. More to work on means more risk in them him not developing the skills needed to reach the higher tier. Neither bothers me so much that I would give the edge to either. I will call this a draw as well.We can’t just look who is the best player right now to determine who our best option is. We have to factor in ceiling, middle ground, need and other risks when sifting out the BPAFU. If Bosa is gone, the choice is between Allen and Williams, I am going to go with Allen. EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Anthony Barr slept for a mere two hours on Monday night, awakened at 3 a.m. by the angst of his decision about which team to pick in free agency.His verbal commitment to join the New York Jets triggered immediate unease about leaving the Minnesota Vikings.“I was up all morning just looking at my ceiling, just looking for a sign, talking to everybody, just trying to figure something out,” Barr said.Fortunately for Barr and his conscience, the Vikings didn’t abandon their desire to retain the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker. They presented a contract offer that was more than sufficient to stay for, even if he’d be turning down a richer deal with the Jets. The league’s two-day negotiating window before contracts can be signed worked out rather well for him.Barr got a five-year deal valued at $67.5 million, with $33 million in guaranteed money. The Vikings held a news conference for him and new defensive tackle Shamar Stephen on Thursday afternoon.“This is where I wanted to be. This is my home. I’m embedded in the community. I do a lot of off-the-field work here. I love my teammates. I love this locker room. The culture we’ve developed over the last five years Joe Namath Jerseys Stitched , it’s been awesome. The bonds I’ve made with my friends, my teammates and my coaches are unbreakable, and it just felt right,” Barr said. “This is where my heart was.”Barr, who will turn 27 next week, was the first draft pick, ninth overall in 2014, the Vikings made under coach Mike Zimmer. Though the hard-nosed boss has occasionally prodded Barr to play with more relentlessness, Zimmer has become a big fan of the 6-foot-5, 255-pound player who has manned the strong side linebacker spot on one of the NFL’s best defenses over the last five seasons.“No team we ever play is going to say, ‘Oh, we’re not going to worry about Anthony Barr,'” Zimmer said.Zimmer played a part in the persuasion process. General manager Rick Spielman held onto some hope.“You might as well keep swinging until you’re knocked out,” Spielman said.Barr figured his first foray into free agency would be fun, but he wound up feeling the opposite.“Monday was one of the worst days of my life, really,” he said.As soon as he told his agent Youth LaDainian Tomlinson Jerseys , Brian Murphy, he would take the offer from the Jets, Barr called his mother, Lori, and fessed up.“I’m like, ‘I think I made a mistake.’ And she was like, ‘Well, you’ve got to fix it,’ and I was like, ‘All right,'” Barr said.Murphy handled the business part, but Barr was left the bigger mess: his emotions.“I was crying, laughing, sweating. The whole day was just crazy,” he said.The enticement of the Jets wasn’t just more money. There was an allure too, Barr said, of being part of a rebuild.“All the respect to the Jets organization LaDainian Tomlinson Jerseys Stitched , their coaching staff, but it’s just not what I really wanted,” he said. “I think initially I kind of jumped the gun, even though it was like a full day worth of conversation. I think I was trying to convince myself of something.”Now Barr will be back with a coach he said he’d “go to war for” and an organization from the top down of people he can trust.“We do have a really good team,” Barr said. “Money’s great, but you can’t be miserable coming in to work every day.”The Vikings took one of the smallest amounts of salary cap space in the league into 2019, with about $5 million at the start of the week before the roster moves began. The Vikings sought a pay reduction from defensive end Everson Griffen, Spielman said, who agreed to a restructured deal that gave the team roughly $4 million in more room. Griffen, who has the same agent as Barr, could have been cut had he resisted the request.“It was down to the wire,” Spielman said.
