anyhow, we've wasted way more time than was merited on this now
Maybe you're not trying to say this but it sure reads like you think teams don't consider at all whether a player they're drafting might be injury prone or unable to stay free of injuries due to size/fragility.

Of course, that kind of statement is, as you so eloquently stated, "nonsense".
