The NBA second round should be based on the team's needs more than the simple best player around. NBA drafts aren't usually that deep, so the players drafted in the second round aren't usually going to be starters. The same definitely goes for the NFL. The first round should be spent on the best player available with subsequent rounds filling in holes. The Patriots usually know this and so they have no problem trading out of the first round if they're mostly concerned with filling holes. They also causing have pretty solid teams, so they're usually concerned with tweaking. The MLB draft is such a crapshoot and so wildly long and ridiculous that I chose to ignore it exists as anything more than a curiosity. I also refuse to take like 90% of scouting reports seriously. There are usually like what? 1 or 2 sure things and then a pile of maybe highschool kids that might not even sign with the team that drafted them and may opt for college instead and try again later. Baseball is weird compared to any other professional sport in this nation. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
