Actually, I interpreted his comments to mean that at #3, you would be compelled to go with a consensus choice as someone who might be a franchise player, but who might also flop. At #5, you have more flexibility to either trade down, or pick someone who is less high risk and fills a defined need. Examples might be players like Biyombo or Kawhi Leonard. It would be difficult for a GM to pick them at #3, but if you really like them, you could take them at #5 or trade down a bit and take them.
