Sorry, but this is one of my pet peeves. They tend to be lower in PREY drive, so not always flashy in sport work. But low PREY drive does not mean lower in drive. There are many different drives besides prey. Defensive, fight, hunt, pack. All drives.

Not picking on you. Just drives me crazy that the word Drive is now synonymous with prey and ball drive.

You are correct that they are not generally chosen for sport work.
