See if this rewording of the description paragraph works in the NFL. Or any other sport for that matter. At least for skill positions:

For most sports drafts, the reason can be described as thusly. When you are drafted in the first round, you're hot, and the managers of the team want to capitalize on that. This leads to getting pushed too fast (usually, in the first game they're available for) and too hard (Hype Backlash sets in, plus they get overwhelmed by the gritty opposing veterans.) Whereas, for the athletes who get drafted in later rounds, they still have all the recognition, but are allowed to relax, work at their own pace, and develop their skills and teamwork to the point that when they do play, they are significant forces for the team.
