Loser's Curse

I came across the article by Bill Simmons and Malcolm Gladwell on the front page of ESPN today, and Gladwell recommended a paper called "The Loser's Curse" by Cade Massey. Well I ran a search on google and found it. It is about 50 pages including appendices, but it is a fascinating analysis on the NFL draft. It is more valuable to a team to draft at the end of the first round than it is at the top! All factors are considered in the analysis, including on-field performance and compensation. Check it out if you get the chance, and after reading it, I am really hoping that we can win this weekend and get outta the top 5!!
