Some players are late bloomers and that can, quality-wise, transform a bad draft year down the line….
Assets are assets. Project well and pick the best you think you will have down the line….
that's what scouts are paid for
The idea is to assess the value of making that pick vs. what you can get for it otherwise (i.e. more picks or actual players). When saying this is a weak draft, this mean that the risk vs. reward of making that pick isn't worth the value of the pick IMO.
