Why Buy Brandin Cooks When This WR is Cheaper?

Why buy a car for $20,000 when you can buy the same car with a crappy paint job for half the price?

The 2017 draft season presents no shortage of opportunities to purchase players who have a host of things going for them – whether it be their situation, talent, or some other factor – for less than a similar, more expensive player.
