We need to jusr go into rebuilding mode, forget about the playoffs the next two years. Stop drafting to fill needs and get back to drafting the best players available-- that is how we have built dominant rosters around the burgh for decades. Art II changed some of that when he took over a few years ago.
I'm not so sure that they haven't drafted the BPA. Sometimes, those picks at 32 are simply good, but not elite.
For example, I think that DD was the BPA at 24. With Foster already playing well, and the departure of Farrior, ILB was probably the bigger "need."
Of course, I never see drafting O-line in R1 as a wasted pick. That's just me.
