Would it make sense to propose that the fact that there are seemingly a lot prospects being predicted anywhere from the first round to second round mean that there is more talent? I don't remember a draft recently like this where a prospect was predicted of being drafted in such a wide range positions in the draft if that makes sense.

Although I believe this is true, I feel that there is an "elite" group of players in the draft made up of several (six-eight) players that are above the rest of the talent in the first round. A lot of the first and second rounders seem to fluctuate from round to round. It kind of feels a portion of the top of the second round has become part of the first round.

What can be inferred from this? Does this mean that there are a lot of great overall prospects at the top of the draft? Or could you infer that there are more prospects that are not necessarily "better" than any other year, but more equal in talent level?

Every year, there it a handful of elite prospects that come out. Those preverbial slam dunk picks. You usually have 4-6 of those type of guys. Then after that, there's another 20 "first round grade" players that are first round players in most any draft class.


This year doesn't have any prospect that would be viewed as the slam dunk pick, but there is probably 40 guys that would be viewed as the "first round grade" types, and there's another 40 or so that are viewed as "second round grade" types.

Hope that makes sense.

This draft is def. on of the most deepest drafts in many years its just not top heavy with those superstars at the top like most drafts.

True... it just seems like a strange draft.

It's a bad draft to have #2, but a fantastic draft to have #33.

Haha... I agree to an extent. Number two would've been great last year.

Absolutely this.

And the other comment is bang on. Bad draft to have #2, but great draft to have #33 and potentially even our 3rd rounder will have outstanding value still on the board.
