The same reason Mitchel Trubisky was rated 7 spots above Patrick Mahomes and Derrick Henry was a mid second round pick. GMs ignore what’s in front of them and believe the talking heads. “Derrick Henry doesn’t have break away speed”, “Deonta is too short and not Big enough”.. If GMs believe it Devonta will be the steal of the draft
At least there's something tangible there. IE: We know Bama has three guys returning that have started on the offensive line. Their guessing, horribly I might add, on where he's going to be drafted and then grading their guess.
I think what he must have meant was to get Trash, I mean Trask with the 46th pick would be A+. Whereas, picking Smith with the 15th pick is an A. Example: If NE was able to pick Sunshine with the 15th pick would be A+. Maybe?
