It's a business and it's an investment, it isn't about making the team better and improving the prospect pool. Unless there are tangible benefits or a near guarantee of a performance increase (7 first round picks) over several years, it just doesn't make sense. However, we don't have access to economic information so we are all just guessing.
This same ownership group just spent 600 million overall, again, it is called a high risk, high reward investment.
The dipietro contract with a first? A low risk and low reward investment.
We have access to all the econ information necessary. We know:
1) the cost of dipietro.
2) the expected value of a playoff round (7 million)
3) the cost of borrowing: 5% or so.
4) the average historical performance of draft picks.
