I was wondering about the depth of the 2004 draft versus 2005. Would you rather have a 1st round pick in the 12-16 range in 2004 or in 2005? It seems that most label the 2004 draft as weak in comparison to the 2005 draft. Any and all opinions are appreciated.
I would take a 2005 draft pick in that area without much question at all. I think the 2005 draft class well be one of the best in quite some time. I think the North American class might actually be better than 2003's...and on top of that, the European class also appears very strong.
Although 2004 isn't really all that bad of a draft and I think it gets more bad rep then it deserves...It was an average draft and picks from the 12-16 range should become quite good players.
