Actually, it's more likely that it is random and that's what causes this problem. True randomness means that you have a 1/5 chance of ending up in any position, and will result in "streaks" wherein you end up in the same one repeatedly. Take flipping a coin 100 times: it's really easy to tell if someone actually ran the experiment or just made up the data, because you'll likely see runs of 7 or more heads in a row in the former and rarely in the latter. Between humanity's tendency to obsess over patterns, remembering negative things more easily than positive things, and to judge randomness by equal distribution, it's no surprise it doesn't feel
random even if it is.
It'd be better, if we want to avoid that perception, to decrease the odds of playing the same position (particularly last pick) twice or more with an increased bias against that position the more times in a row a player has been in it. Such a system would actually be less random, but probably feel more random and fairer.
