the draft curses the high picks
  teams avoid picking first
  the cost of failure is too great
  Mario Williams was a genius pick for Houston

no team wants to pick first in the draft any more.

they try to trade down, but nobody else is willing to trade up.

this is because the first couple picks are always way overpriced.

yet rather than waste the pick, the team usually comes to terms with the greedy agent

and often the guy is a bust like Jamarcus Russell

Most teams often don't like the 2nd pick in the draft either.

Mmm...I disagree on your statement that says "Often the guy is a bust", "Nobody else is willing to trade up" razz
