This is my take as well. Given that there is a greater gap in value between elite position player and the second / third tier position players than there is between the elite pitchers and their second / third tier counterparts, it seems that if a club wanted to maximize the value of their draft picks they'd try to use their early round picks to acquire impact position players and focus on pitching afterward.
I'm not sure how anyone could use this data to support drafting nothing but pitching at the top of every draft...
