Marker Donahoe on why the draft is so interesting [4:59 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s the phenomenon of the draft,” he said. “Fans, the general public and the media know most of the first-rounders and who they are, at least potentially. That’s why there’s all the tension in the first round. Statistically, if you look at it, probably 50 percent of the first-rounders fail. But those are the players the fans know, they’ve seen these guys play, they’re in the draft books, the draft gurus talk about them so people can identify with them. It’s the second round, third round and middle rounds, where most (selections) are not household names.”'
