Some quick math for you.
Two sample teams:
Team A has 85 scholarship players, 10 of which were 4- or 5-star recruits. Years later, Team A puts 3 players (any three, not just 4- or 5-stars) into the draft.
Team B has 85 scholarship players, 50 of which were 4- or 5-star recruits. Years later, Team B puts 15 players (any 15, not just 4- or 5-stars) into the draft.
Team A finishes with 0.3 rating. Team B finishes with same 0.3 rating.
What does it mean? Eh, to me, not much.

My guess would be that the way this is calculated leads teams that load up on 4- and 5-star recruits to underperform in this metric statistically. Say you have 70 guys who are 4- or 5-stars on your 85-man team. No way are all 70 of those guys playing or panning out. You could have 45 instead and probably still have the same NFL Draft success rate.
