I believe that the true value lies in the middle of the round where certain top 10 picks may fall like Morgan, McClain, D. Williams, E. Thomas, A. Davis, J. Haden, CJ Spiller, and D. Bryant. All these guys in other drafts would be top 10 picks, all of them, IMO.
We are so fortunate to have two picks in that range! Honestly, we can potentially land two top 10 picks at #13 and #17. Wow!
Honestly, in this particular draft, I think without a doubt the talent is in the 26-50 range. I would kill to have what the Patriots have with multiple 2nd round picks, because with such a deep draft, that's the spot where you want to be in. Not only can you get great players, but they're easy on the salary cap as well.
I actually think the best value is between 11 and 50. This is where all those guys that if they returned to school, could have ended up being top ten or top five picks, but the lack of a salary cap drew them out. Mid way into the second round this year is equal to a first round pick almost any other year. The guys in the teens like Joe Haden or Jason Pierre-Paul would have been top five if they returned to school and those are two guys the 9ers could get (but I don't want Pierre-Paul).
