Peter King today explores the way teams often pay huge money to high first-round picks, only to find that they're not worth the salary cap space. This won't exactly come as news to regular Football Outsiders readers, but King does a good job of exploring how much the Redskins are paying LaVar Arrington and how little they're getting out of him, and examining the way the second round of the draft in 2000 was almost as good as the first round, and at a fraction of the price.

The Bucs' rookie made a lot of big plays last year, but he'll need to cut down on turnovers and sloppy throws to live up to his draft status.
