That's why we're thrilled when we get a first round WR as opposed to a 4th, that's why we're happy when we get a LT in the first as opposed to the bottom of the third.
Whether we know it or not, admit it or not, we all value 1st round players more than 6th round players. We take offense when someone says our first round LT is graded as a 2nd round prospect, because our grade is much more generous than that.
We love that our 3rd round OLB had a 1st round grade, makes us feel like our team got a deal... or at least true value.
