It's a fact that if you draft higher, you're significantly more likely to get a quality player. Especially now, as scouting becomes more sophisticated, your chances of drafting a bust that early are significantly lower than they were 10 years ago. Look at every draft from 2000-2010. How many top 5 picks can you find that ended up not being impact players for their teams?
