Because that's all anyone is doing in this business.

You've got to go through your evaluation process and then you've got to trust it. If you don't think a QB in the draft is the best choice for you at 1-1, then you don't make that move just because you think you "have" to.
If the Texans go through their process and they don't think Bridgewater or Bortles is going to be the player that's going to be the most productive for our team, then they shouldn't draft them.

If they think Louis Nix is going to be the most impactful player they could draft, then they should draft him and all the experts be damned.

You find the best player for your team and you roll the dice. If you happen to think that's Ryan Leaf, c'est la vie.
