The Argument for Bryce Harper at Third Overall in Fantasy Drafts

Adam Ronis talks about the value of drafting Bryce Harper third overall. Some may not even want him in the first round, but the talent is undeniable when Harper stays on the field.

While discussing a recent draft he participated in, Adam Ronis talks about whether No. 3 overall is too high for Bryce Harper. Some might even argue the first round is too high. But here, Ronis discusses the merits and logic behind why the Washington Nationals superstar is worth the risk because his talent more than covers the eventual reward. Ronis does clarify that he might not take him at third overall, but he understands and explains the point of view of someone who would take him at the No. 3 spot. It’s important to be flexible. There’s no such thing as a perfect draft or a sure thing at the first or second pick either.
