Your synopsis there for those years is exactly how I'd put it.
That is what I am worried about. I am 100% against your position that 7th round is just as strong (or weak) as the 3rd round.

But like you said, scouting has improved so much, developmental systems have changed, and the rounds moved from 9 to 7 rounds, not leaving much room for us to compare stats...
