Same way it went for the Duane Brown pick.

Same thing the year before. They had a list of Running backs. Maybe as many as 6 that they thought could fit our system. The idea may have been, "if these 6 guys are still available, we'll wait until the third round to pick a running back; if 5 are available in the third, we'll wait until the 4th; if 4 are availavle in the 4th, we'll wait until the 5th & so on & so forth.... " they may have got to the final pick & still had 3 of their guys available so they decided not to use a pick on a running back at all.
This probably describes every draft. Good post, though.
