it is near impossible to predict the future though. Erik Johnson when he signed. Was not the projected #1 overall guy. So who knew? Who saw Chucko and Jake Taylor leaving early. I was shocked when Sutter and Skille left early. They had things left to learn. And maybe Wheeler a top 5 pick, might stay all 4 years. Grant Scott who is coming in next year to the gophers. Was a late projected first rounder. Now should no one leave early, he may be asked to play another year else where.
