It really comes down to your GM being a talent evaluator. Gillis has the eye for talent from his agent days. If he didn't find it, it negatively impacted his paycheck. Nonis didn't have that and you could tell.
Most times, if your GM is a good judge of talent, you don't make big mistakes in the 1st round.
So far, I have liked every one of Gillis's 1st round picks - yes, even Schroeder.
Me too since he drafts what TSN and central scouting tells him to draft lol but beyond the 1st round is another story.
