in baseball and football it's easy to find quality players in the later rounds
I understand the red flags, but Rookies make only 3 mil a year or less in their 1st 3 years. It isn't like they are taking a huge risk by taking a player like Sully or PJIII high. We always hear about guys who are high risk that end up panning out because they get put in a better position. It's just they made it look like Sully and PJIII were made of glass. Still got to take a chance if you know they can play the game at the next level. With both of them dropping down that far, I think both of them have been put in a better position to do well. Sully coming off the bench for the C's and PJIII being OKC's 7th man eventually.
I want to see Barnes now. He was looking thinner in his workouts on youtube. He might be one of those guys who was overhyped, but ends up doing well, because he has a element in his game that GS lacks because they traded away Ellis.
