While that's true, we really will seem to never find one because of the way we draft. We draft guys that are more well rounded prospects and more on the "safe" side. I'd like to see us go for more boom or bust picks, sort of like Ebert but more offensive guys. Looking at you, Anton Slepyshev. Draft more people with high end upside.
