Personally I like to see teams take chances on guys with red flags in the later rounds, character/injury/etc. but what seems to be most successful is when teams draft a guy with specific talent or skill and have a plan to use that skill accordingly. Sounds like a simple enough idea yet as we all know as the rounds get later the chance of success decreases, but guys like Marques Colston being used as a big bodied possession/red zone target, Richard Sherman using his length and aggressiveness as a press corner, Julian Edelman used in the slot so his quickness and shiftiness allow him to separate underneath, Jay Ratcliff as a disruptive NT, Matt Birk as a cerebral, technical sound OL who just needed to switch positions to accommodate his physical limitations. Specific traits that your coaching staff and team know how and can successfully use those traits seems to be the recipe for success in the later rounds.

Given the low hit rate of late picks, I'd almost always draft a QB (unless I'm a team like the Patriots who have a great starter and backup, and they still drafted Brisett). QBs are the highest upside players anyways and 90% of solid starters flash by the end of their second year so you can cut guys after that. Its something thats always bugged me about teams like Bal, Indy, Mia, Was (outside of the RGIII/Cousins year). Instead you have teams like Jacksonville who keep riding the Bortles bus, hoping that he's the rare late bloomer.
