Overpay for the first, everyone makes fun of them so the second goes cheaper. And then people panic on the last one in a tier.
I bet there's a fantastic psych thesis on studying behaviors during an auction draft.
That is one of the cool things about auctions, every one has its differences. for the most part for me it is top guys are cheaper early, because some want to let others spend money early. In phase 2 they panic, because they realize they missed out and overspend for lesser talent. Then in the later phases the guy with little money is still getting decent guys for real cheap.
It is better to overpay for a stud, than to underpay for the average joe.
