I hate hearing that a prospect was once seen as a first rounder. It means that he slipped once he had the light shined on him.

People who were seen as first rounders who slipped (e.g., McColgan, Grachev) are much, much less likely to succeed than guys who came out of nowhere to be drafted in a "too high" position with everyone screaming Who?! Why?! (e.g., Stepan, Chara).
