It's ridiculous.As I suspected, most fans really seem to have an irrational fascination with pick 1. Historically it just doesn’t yield the best player in the draft class, and often not even close.
Consider all the players listed... only one top pick among them. They are best/most valuable players in the league and the vast majority were taken outside the top ten.
Around 50% of the players taken at pick 1 over the last 20 years are B graders.
There'd be at least 20 players I'd give up pick 1 for.
