I wasn’t specifically talking about the draft. In regards to the draft there needs to be slotting. Just not the way it’s currently done. As I mentioned, in the NFL for the most part you play where you play for who ever drafts you. Eli Manning and Elway head the list of outliers but it’s extremely rare.
Baseball prospects have other opinions including taking a scholarship, returning to school etc. In the NFL, the slotting is in place and there is really no advantage to holding out.
