The Hidden Advantage of Being a High NFL Draft Pick

Post by dead_poet » Thu Apr 16, 2015 1:42 pm

This was a very insightful and fascinating read.
What if I told you that NFL teams unwittingly contribute to their own mediocrity by stifling the growth of late-round draft picks while incubating an ideal environment for their top draft picks to thrive? This is not an episode of 30 for 30, but it should be. This is the hidden advantage of being drafted high in the National Football League.
