In regards to this year, I definitely agree with you on the drop off. In years past, Tier 1 players would be available picks est. #1-7... This year, it seems as only LT & Brady are left with Tier 1 status, while the rest are plagued with question marks. Years past with the likes of: LT, Alexander, Holmes, Portis, McAllister, Ahman Green, Culpepper, Manning, ect. you were basically guaranteed monster production all throughout for the most part of the 1st round.
In my personal opinion, the drop off midway through the 1st rd is drastic. Hell, even after the 1st 3 picks... but that's just me. I still think that the ideal draft position is, and will always be #1, unless we get to a point where all player production in the 1st rd is practically identical.
