Sometimes some players are highly regarded as top prospects and can’t miss players, but sometimes those can’t miss turn out to be bust and never turn out to be the players they were expected to be.
While todays draft doesn’t look to be too deep, there have been other draft classes who weren’t so deep but some teams pick wisely, while every pick isn’t guaranteed to be a game changer some turn out to be just bust.
