A guy like Matt Martin (5th round pick) had much lower "upside" in his draft than many of the players taken around him who outscored him in juniors. Those other guys with higher "upside" might be more talented, but their talents are in play at the AHL and ECHL levels while Martin has carved out a nice role in the NHL.
Are you trying to tell us this guy has a better chance to crack the lineup than Subban or Buchnevich? The 3rd round is so underrated. You're definitely still drafting upside at this point. Your looking for depth in the 5th, 6th, and 7th no doubt. The 3rd and 4th rounds can still produce solid NHL players. Heck, Subban was projected as a late first/early second for a while.
