Yep, no argument there, I agree. I was just trying to clarify what that "bracket of 8" could mean, because reading someone's post above, my impression was that the post (or the tweet it cited) indicated that those were (mostly?) round 1 graded players. And I think this was not the case. But maybe I took that post/tweet the wrong way, so whatever, I'm happy where we are at with our 3 second rounders and the one extra 2020 second rounder.
Remember when Darius Leonard was picked in the SECOND round last year? Didn't a bunch of people freak out when he was drafted? Maybe CB knows how to draft well in the second. If we get 3 guys that are Smith and Leonard types, we are all going to be pretty happy I imagine.
The likelihood of players selected #15 through #70 grading out closely is highly unlikely.
It’s likely that 5 years from now we will be able to identify busts, average players, pro bowlers and all pros from within that range from this year’s draft.
If Ballad has them all graded similarly, it’s still the same problem.
