I agree with the overall thought, but I don't know if it's a "must have" the draft is still a crap shoot...
At the same time, we've gotten quality starters in later rounds before. OD, Demeco, Quin... all contributed very well their rookie year. JJ Watt turned it on at the end of his rookie year (as did Brooks Reed) but it wasn't until last year (his sophomore season) that anyone thought he was the best player in that draft.
But I get what you're saying.
