Q: It may be because I'm just a regular football fan, but it seems to me that teams undervalue players and overvalue draft picks (i.e., Antonio Cromartie for a third-round pick). If a team could know it was drafting a player in the third round with the value of Antonio Cromartie, it would do cartwheels, but yet the San Diego Chargers settled for just the third-rounder. Do you think teams overvalue draft picks?
