Post Study: Pricing study finds top picks not worth cost.

LINK

"We're not saying that (lower-valued) player's better, but he's paid so much less that the team does better on him than they do on the top guy," he said. "It's not necessarily that players are overvalued or draft picks are overvalued, it's that high draft picks are overvalued relative to low draft picks."

========================================

I dont think this is anything new. Teams that have low first round picks year after year dont get knocked down by having less talent; they just get beat by the salary cap, and free agency. It seems to me that players from a SB team, get picked apart by free agency (other teams wanting to pay too much for one of their players) and the cap.

Any thoughts?

Look at New Englend they have little to no star power and they roll. Teams that rely on one to two "stars" wont win cause they cant get anyone eles, like the Colts Eagles and Falcons.

Hmm.. the top 5 maybe 8 picks will cost the team a lot of dough. A lot of them have very high expectations, which equals high salaries, but you are right, it takes more than one player to have success. But the Colts "star" would be Peyton Manning, but don't forget they have a good half back in Edgerrin James, an all star receiver in Marvin Harrison, and a solid number 2 option in Reggie Wayne. Now when you talk about a "star" on defense, there is none, besides Dwight Freeney, but it's going to take more than a defensive end.
