Can anyone explain to me why it seems be be generally accepted that Burke has vastly improved our prospect pool but HF thinks we have slipped (one spot) in the rankings.

I guess the current rankings were before the draft.
But
1) All last season many people were claiming our prospects were already much better.
2) Did adding Reilly (and our other picks) really improve us that much?
Congratulations You've just debunked one of the MANY myths perpetrated around here by Burke supporters.

Outside of Reilly we have no elite Talent - similar to the crop of players we had way back when.
