Right, so how do you determine who the "best" player is?

If your coaching staff doesn't know how to bring a certain pick along, or he doesn't get touches, or he doesn't have a well defined role in your system, then it's entirely possible to turn a good pick into a bust.

I don't believe in "BPA" for a second. It's an oversimplified view of the matter.

In the end the pick needs to be made with a vision in mind. The coaching staff needs to look at a guy and say to themselves "he's going to be a great player, because we can see how he's going to develop, and we can see how to get him there".
