… he went from underrated to overrated. He went from an average draft position of 201, or the 14th round, to pick 115, in the 8th round. This is what can happen in your draft when someone is dubbed a “sleeper”. The sleeper becomes a hot commodity on draft day and his thought to be great value late evaporates because he is not taken late. On draft day his ADP was cut in half, did he start a new roids cycle recently? Is he in the “best shape of his life”? The answers are I don’t know and I sincerely doubt it but somehow this thought to be bargain 3B jumped 100 spots in the draft, a remarkable turn around. Just something to consider in your draft, if there is a buzz about a player being a sleeper before your draft, chances are he’ll no longer be sleeping till late on your draft day.
