    I'd like to highlight an idea that I wrote about last year but didn't really too much opinion on it. These are two articles that I wrote for ArmchairGM.com last year after the draft, and I thought it would be appropriate to bring them both up again. Keep in mind that these were written last year, and don't have current info or ideas about last year's draft picks.

    The Impact of First-Round Picks article will give per-team analysis as opposed to simply listing off teams in each "category".

    The Importance of the Second Round will show information on individual teams if you go to the website.

    I didn't see Tampa Bay listed in the strong/mediocre/weak category at all. Where would you classify them??? Hopefully the omission was a typo and doesn't affect your data crunching.....

    They were in the strong category. I forgot to write them in. Thanks.

    There is alot to think about here and I'm not done yet. But I had to post one thought that sprung to my mind: lots of people on this board every year (including me) are enamored with the idea of trading 1st rounders down into the second round to stock-pile future picks. If your theories are correct, this commonly accepted "value" based approach is entirely self-destructive. Interesting!

    How so?

    What if the trade is 1st this year for a 2nd this year and 1st next year? How is that "entirely self destructive"?

    Even if it were a 1st for two 2nds... 1st's are better than 2nds but you have to figure quantity in in addition to quality.
