For every draft you can name that we missed out on a quality player (ala Revis) then I can name an instead pick for example how bout Ray Rice instead of Mendenhall. High sight is what makes monday morning QBs so good.

Where we pick is predicative of who we pick. No pick is a sure thing and great players fall through the cracks but players who are picked earlier have a higher chance of being successful..that's why they're picked earlier. With the rookie wage scale, nobody can argue they'd rather have the 17th pick than the 16th or the 10th. Draft position and player success are correlated.
