What Prospect will Fall Lower than Expected

There always seems to be one guy who everyone before the draft thinks is a can't miss but for some reason falls to either the mid or late first round.

Last year it was Parise, who does everyone think it will be this year?

If I had to pick one I think it may be Olesz.

I think Olesz may fall lower than expected because there really isn't any super star talent after the first two picks. Because of this I think a lot of teams will go for a more sure thing (if there is one), or a safer pick.

You look at guys like Ladd, Stafford, Radulov, Barker, Thelan and maybe even a goaltender like Montoya could all go ahead of him.

I know Chicago will prob pick him 3rd and make me look like an idiot for calling this one, but I think Olesz may be the guy who falls lower than everyone expects.
