A good draft value article it seems. I'll see about getting a copy in a few days. I will be where I can get into university libraries and perhaps get it for free. Dr.Z's draft article. The source of my draft data.

Former Raiders tight end Todd Christensen: "It never ceases to amaze me how the NFL brass collectively treats draft picks like plutonium," he writes. "Years ago, the Raiders picked up Lyle Alzado for an eighth-round choice and Greg Pruitt for an 11th. The fact that Pruitt went on to be a Pro Bowl kick returner and Alzado played four more years is almost beside the point. What eighth or 11th round pick is going to play like these guys?

"In the other three major sports, they are more than willing to part with draft picks, plenty of them in fact, if they can garner a proven player. Maybe that is why the Patriots brass is so ahead of the curve. What second-round pick could have possibly given them 1,600 yards and been ridden to a Super Bowl title as Dillon was?"
