When did somebody say they were always better? Whether you like it or not, draft position does matter when it comes to trade value. Do you think a disgruntled 22 year old with mediocre production (0.34 point per game pace through 137 games played, or 27 point pace over a season) who wants out of town gets David Rundblad and a 2nd round pick if he wasn't drafted 3rd overall? The fact is, the majority of 1st overall picks are better, more productive players (when talking about forwards obviously) than Benn is now by the time they're his age.
