I do believe there is a nature vs nurture component in evaluating draft choices. Though your example is beyond extreme. Asomugha excelled in Oakland despite the chaos around him. Talent and desire eventually shine through.
I think a team should lean to drafting to their system, as long as they aren't passing on an extraordinary talent. If a player is great, you need to find a place for him in your system. Andre Johnson would be great in any system. Patrick Willis, the same. You find a place for a player like that. Otherwise, draft the best player that fits your organization.
