Maybe I wasn't clear in the right way based upon my understanding of your statement. In the case of Levis and Anderson, go back in time a bit. The media in aggregate was way late to the party on those two. It was hard to find anyone touting either of those two as a potential top 5 pick a year ago. The media are only now beginning to catch up to where GM's/scouts were valuing these guys.I am confused by that if the media underestimates how high coaches and GMs value top QBs wouldn't they be picked earlier than the media predict. Last year Ridder Willis and Corral were expected to go in Round 1 or 2 but all dropped to round 3. In a similar vain I expect Levis and Richardson to drop below where the media are predicting at least those predicting 4 QBs in the top 5.
In the case of Mahomes, the overall media had him barely a first round pick, and more likely a later than first round pick. Then the Chiefs trade up to grab him at #10.
