Playing the underslot game doesn't really interest me, because, to be honest, if you look at the past few drafts, nothing around picks 30-50 really blows me out of the water.

You'd want to go back further than that to give those players time to mature. From 2005-2007, here's a sampling of 2nd rounders:
That said, I still agree with your point. Those guys aren't exclusively signability picks, your 1S and 2nd rounders are still really good prospects regardless. And the 1st round offers more predictability so you want to be sure to go with what you feel is right with that one, even if it makes the later rounds trickier.
