What kind of analysis is that? Most of our 2nd rounder will be busts? How in Earth do you know that? If not busts, then 3rd/4th liners? Are you privy to information that most of us are not? Do you know the sheer amount of top line players that have gotten picked AFTER the first round historically? The number is pretty big. IF you do your homework right, then you can emerge from the rounds after the 1st, with some pretty good players.
And if you want to make trades for any of these top picks, you cannot escape 2 things:
1. Including the 6th pick
2. Players that are a little better than Falardeau, Poti, Rachunek, or Ortmeyer.
