While that's true, there are mid/late round picks who far outperform higher round guys every year at multiple positions. Brady is just the most used example. That's part of any endeavor when humans are using judgement. But, fans need to remember even NE passed on Brady 5 times so it isn't as though they had superior scouts.Five years after Brady was drafted every owner in the league should have been asking their scouting department and their GMs (if these people were still around) why they missed 5 separate times on this pick. Because whatever metrics the entire NFL was using to judge QBs at that time proved to be wrong.
That's one of the problems in the NFL -- there's no accountability to the scouts when they horribly miss on talent.
