Browns are going to regret passing on Ojabo only to see him go to a division rival. Ravens absolutely crushed this draft.
Hope you're wrong but I don't think so.After the signing of Watson,I just gave up.Gave up way to much in talent and even more in salary for questionable character.The Browns have to win the whole thing and being highly competitve is no reason to mortgage the future. Dumping all the draft picks makes the remaining pix just that much more important. Where they traditionally haven't practiced common sense. I'm beginning to think they pass out mercury popsickles in Berea

So what you're saying has no basis in fact or reality. 
Never said it couldn't happen.

I don't doubt their talent evals, but whether or not a player is successful involves so many other things besides talent.
Rating a draft in the moment is silly, of course, because it's simply rating it compared to the consensus...nothing more.  And as you said, the consensus isn't great.
.
Maybe we could judge each draft 8 years down the line? 

Cover the current draft, all the focus on the first 2 rounds.  But for the lagging later round coverage, do a deep-dive on the draft from 8 years prior.  Then it makes some sense, no?
These are both excellent pieces of content. The second is more useful, but sports fans really want the first, and thus. someone provides it.

I doubt my picks would be superior to those paid to do this and who have experience and a wealth of information I lack, except by chance.

So many factors go into whether or not an NFL player succeeds. Coaching and scheme fit. Injury luck. And a lot of it I think is maturity and character of a person. It's impossible to predict how young guys in their early 20s who have nothing become millionaires and local celebrities overnight in whatever cities they get drafted to will handle that. Some of them ace that test, others....not so much. Look at Jamarcus Russell or Henry Ruggs. They got millions of dollars and went wild.

And yet fans persist in complaining about various draft choices, as if they know better.

the draft is very similar to recruit signing day

although not as many college fans complain about signing day choices

similar but different in that Nick Saban or Urban Meyer or Kirby Smart basically pick who they want- where in NFL- you have to take who falls to you or who you can trade up for.

I THINK 5 stars are more successful than first rounders, by some degree, this is an impression, perhaps because first round busts are more obvious.

Oh yeah, I think that is a major part of my thesis.  The 5 star QBS in college nearly always do really well.
