The Reds have, like every other year, drafted who they thought was the best available player at the time of each pick.
You may not agree with the pick, but there is no conspiracy going on, no deep rooted secret.
Many players fall for multiple reasons.
Paxton has seemed to fall quite a bit. It's not like we are the only team to let him fall, everyone else passed too. I don't know the reason. I don't know if it is even valid. But every team passed on him a few times when many were wanting him picked.
