But we know that is skewed as well. How many players have been skipped over because of sign-ability concerns not because of talent. BA top prospects, these should be the best prospects in the game not a RP taken earlier than anyone else but because that team knows they can get them signed, they get picked in the top 10.

Yeah but it used "value".

"The seminal work on prospect success and value was done by Victor Wang. His initial study, titled "How Much is a Top Prospect Worth?"

So where is the value, a 2 million dollar 1st rounder or 100K 4th rounder? That's what I was meaning.
