The better question is if he is worth a 1st overall pick???

It's funny because before the draft, pick values were being discussed on here and most fans were valuing a top 3 pick to be a 1st line player, top 4 d man, top prospect and a 1st round pick...

Is the 1st overall pick in a draft worth that after the player has been drafted (with the exception of generational players)...

Nope.

These top picks are like new cars - once you roll them off the lot they lose half their value.
