I'm always amused looking at these draft sites that have 40-50 players with first rounds grades, and 40-50 graded out in each of the 2nd & 3rd rounds as well. Keeping this in mind, it also is amusing to hear surprise when players start to "fall."
I think the way to draft is have a number of players projected for spots on the board and contingencies to trade down if things don't fall your way. Even if you trade down and pick up picks for next year, you're building for the future. Get to know what the teams in those spots want, and what their tendencies are on draft day, and you stand a better chance of predicting how far you can move to pick up your player. Even with all of that, you're still hiring people and that's always a crapshoot.
