I hear two theories here. Late round pics that pan out are strictly luck and if teams thought they would do well they would have drafted them earlier A late find and/or the ability to consistently produce late round pics into players is the product of good scouting What do You Think? I'm in the latter camp. While the odds are low, picking up players late is the sign of good leg work and is certainly better scouting than a slam dunk lottery pick. My rejoinder to the "why didn't they pick them earlier" musing is they did pick these players earlier, earlier than other teams and I don't doubt for a minute teams will hold of on a player they like more if they think they can get him in a lower round.
