Gragnani is more of a Mike Green-lite type guy (More of a shooter) and I see Ellis more like Rafalski (More of a playmaker).
And the Biega/Brennan/Schiestal mix seems like Sekera-ish upside to me. As a comparison, Ellis outscored Brennan and Schiestal combined this season.
Having that group as the future PP QB Dman is like saying they have enough size up front in the pipeline because of Adam and Gogulla.
I still think that the value Ellis will have at 13 will trump organizational need as 10 years from now, I'm betting that Ellis is one of the 5 or 6 best players in the 2009 draft.
