The draft is a total crapshoot. There is no such thing as a "genius." talent evaluator. Some teams clearly are better than others at drafting, but at the end of the day, it's a guessing game. Something that really bothers me is the 40-yard dash. What is the point of having someone run 40-yards straight with no pads, straight ahead, and in a dome? What exactly does that prove? "Oh boy, look at that guy!" He may have been an underachiever in college but damn, he sure can run fast!" I mean, seriously, some of these evaluation tools are a joke.

yea the wonderlic test and the 40 are a joke. Dwayne Jarrett would have been a first rounder if he ran 4.5 40 instead he was a 2nd rounder because he ran a 4.6 and he had a great college career. Trent Edwards won 1 game last year and was drafted 3rd round while Troy Smith won 12 and went last pick in round 5.
