I don't disagree with what you say but I will point out that the "but he could also amount to nothing at all" pretty much applies to 85% of the players taken in the draft. I may even be overly generous in this respect. Basically any player outside of the top 10 or so has a reasonable chance of amounting to nothing. By the third round the probabilty is very high.
