Thats because of transition from College to NFL.

College schools will recruit the most athletic player out there where as the guy who can transition the best to the NFL is going to lesser known schools.

Everybody that is so high on T.Austin how about this scenario. Saints pick Austin @ 15 and trade Sproles to Rams for Saffold. Saints get the same kind of weapon at a much better cap figure, younger.Ram move a unhappy player. Saints vet. Solution to LT need. You would be betting that Austin would be as good as Sproles.
