Come on now... you know I was referring to a player's initial valuation at draft time
Although there is a lot of truth to the notion that many owners actually do hold a player's value consistent with where they originally drafted them (similar to how people do not want to sell stocks at a lower price than they acquired them). It is an emotional mechanism... to value them lower than they they were drafted would be to admit they made a mistake, and given the egos that we tend to carry, most of us are not willing to admit that.
