"There will be 13-15 players picked in the first round that are true first-rounders," he said. "That's a fairly low number."
Last year, according to the general manager, there were 20-23 players who were true first-rounders. That's about average.
Even 20-23 should be below average. The average number of first rounders should be 32 by it's own definition, or they should re-evaluate how to give out first round grades. I think this is an average year for first round talent, but there aren't any elite prospects with top 5 grades.
