Tiers. It's a pretty simple concept: You group similar players together, so you know when to expect them to go off the board.
Let's say you need a quarterback, but you don't have your heart set on just one. You'd be fine with any one of, say, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, and Cam Newton, and all three are on the board heading into your next pick, and you've got another pick right after that.
There's no need to panic. You can take another position, confident that at least one of that tier will be there when you make your next pick. That's the power of tiers.
