Thats just stupid
If you have 6 draft prospects who are all potential number ones you dont say the guy picked sixth is the worst player and shouldnt be paid like a top 5 guy, its just the teams ahead picked the players that best fitted their needs
Crabtree was definately in the top 5 of talent in the draft but the teams that picked before san fran just didnt need him as much as another player (minus oakland of course)
