I think the "far more damaging" is key.
That said, those seeking "more randomness" would probably enjoy the boom/bust possibilities of the low make-up guys. It would certainly make the draft a bit tougher. Say a 10 make-up player has superstar potential. But, at 10, there's a 70% chance he'll be a complete dud. If nothing else, the top 5 should stay away from him(because you can't "miss" with a top 5, IMO). 6-10 would have to decide if the gamble is worth it based on what else they see. In a good draft, he could drop into the 20s. Of course, if someone dicks up, picks him 2nd and watches him flounder, they still have the option of dumping the team.
