I do this from time to time but it always differs from draft to draft. If you want player X a round or two from now and you know you don't get to pick for 23 more players sometimes you either have to draft that guy a round early or hope he is still available or worse case scenario pass on him all together

I don't think it's terribly bad if you reach for a player, as long as it's within reason. Picking a guy in the 5th when he should go in the 6th isn't the worst thing in the world, especially if he's really valuable to your team's plans. For example, if I really need Chone Figgins for my team (I don't know what round Figgins is projected for, just using him as an example,) drafting him a round early shouldn't harm your team too much. Just don't reach too often!
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
