Top 5: Overvalued Prospects

I wrote a couple of weeks ago that everyone assesses draft talent differently and as a result every analyst has guys they will generally be higher or lower on than the accepted consensus view. 

In that article I gave you my top 5 undervalued guys – players who I believe are better than the generally accepted consensus. 

Today I give you my top 5 overvalued prospects – the guys who’s hype I’m just not buying. That’s not to say these aren’t good players and that they won’t make good pros, but is more that my evaluation of them has them lower than I’m hearing or seeing that others have got them. 

Top 5: Undervalued Prospects

Everyone assesses draft talent differently and as a result every analyst has guys they will generally be higher or lower on than the accepted consensus view. 

Here I take a look at five of “my guys” – prospects I’m higher on than most – and explain why it is that I think the consensus is wrong, and why you should be pleased if your team drafts one of these players earlier than you were expecting come draft night.
