Most of the time he has "players he likes" and reaches for them in instances where he's afraid they might not last to our next pick, despite them NOT being the BPA.
This is how Scot consistently works. And it disgusts me.
#1. He is not very good at judging BPA, because he overvalues measurables over performance, and only considers BPA when they fit his mold of big players
#2. He is bad at 'value':
McC over-values and hence over-drafts players that he falls in love with. At the time of their selections I thought that these guys were clearly drafted higher than their 'value' (ie. they were clearly over-drafted):
D1 Alex Smith, D2 David Baas, D3 Brandon Williams, high D4 Mike Robinson, high D4 Jay Moore, high D2 Chilo Rachal, high D4 Cody Wallace,
These guys were all obviously over-drafted, so it seems that McC does NOT draft BPA, rather he drafts 'player he fell in love with'. Most of these picks (not Smith or Baas) would have been still available one round later than Scot picked them in. So he could have traded down and still drafted most of these guys.
