That's about right when you consider proportion. There aren't that

many 5* to begin with and there are other factors that eliminate lots of 4* and 5* athletes like

injuries (they often play early in college)
they don't pan out because they were overrated, didn't work hard, switched positions
Many of the really good 5* are drafted early and end up on bad teams.

There are many stories of 2* and 3* that develop late, which happens in other sports as well. Look at how many one and done-ers go to the NBA and don't amount to much for quite a long time, if ever.

There are hundreds more 2* and 3* athletes out there, so the % that make it to the NFL is still much smaller than the % of 4 and 5 star athletes that make it.
