I'm not really sure that it is being unrealistic, but I definitely feel like people over-value draft picks.

I mentioned in a thread yesterday that I thought we should offer our second rounder for a 24 year old Percy Harvin. People responded with, "Why would we trade for Harvin? We could just draft a WR with that pick."

Really? You think it is as easy as just turning in a card for our next top 5 receiver? Percy Harvin is who that pick turns out to be in the absolute best case scenario. Odds are the player doesn't come close to making the impact Harvin would.

A non-Chiefs' fan asked me the other day if I'd trade the #1 overall for Romo. Without hesitation I said no, and he thought I was crazy. After thinking about it for a bit, if you told me that the guy we are going to pick would put up 4,500+ yards and a bunch of touchdowns and lead the team and be the face of the franchise, I would take that 10 times out of 10. It just sounds so absurd to trade the #1 for a guy like that, and I probably still wouldn't do it just because of the hope that you strike gold, but it is interesting to think about.
