I'm not saying any of the above is reason not to trade your low first rounder, but I don't think you can realistically determine its value with these data.
Yes and no. Sports have been addressing improved scouting and player development for years. In reality the difference is pretty marginal at best.

The draft is and will always be a crap shoot because of the ages involved and the human factor.

What they have done is figure out a little better when to take a player.
