It's all hype at the start of the year, but by draft day, the draft just isn't considered that deep anymore.
I've seen the same things.

Ironically - the one year that the draft was supposed to be weak all along, 2011...it looks like it may have been the strongest draft in recent years. Certainly for the Hawks, but overall too. I remember when Washington traded #26 to the Hawks for Brouwer - some Caps fans were saying it was because their GM said he didn't like anyone in the draft.
