That's kinda what he did say.

So you donít go into the Draft saying ĎIíve got to get this. Iíve got to get that,í because, in my opinion, if you do that, you are inclined to reach and take a player that doesnít meet the value. Itís not that you donít select players in positions that you need. The key is that they have the corresponding value at the point where you are picking and if you do that, and you can hit a player at a position of need at the value spot, then you are good.Ē
