I have no idea. It was only after he was selected and I spent about an hour (while following the draft) dredging reports and statistics on him. (All I knew was seeing his name on here the last few months of browsing.) I remember some site showed a compilation of a half dozen scouting services and I sort of groaned when I saw a couple ranking him in the twelve to fifteen range. Either they were some fringe service or I was reading something way out of date. I believe you guys because the CSS reports I find now from last January show him at ten.

And I remember reading a blog, I had thought it was one of the TSN hockey writers but I must have been wrong who basically said his stock really moved since January and moved higher at the combine. So combined with the raking report I saw and reading that his stock had risen... I was worried.

I don't usually believe everything I read. If I find the links later I'll post them so as to get the source judged. Right now I see it's true of 9-10 as the most common rank from around last January. Which is great.

Now I'm annoyed with my post draft reading and eventually I'll track down some obscure report. Nothing yet...
