Basically I think he has good size and decent physical tools. People differ on how much he's willing to use those tools. But the Rangers already have an enormous number of smurfs... taking a shot on some size is almost never a bad idea. Particularly not when you have all those picks and it's just a 2nd rounder . . .
In defense of the Olver pick, every report raved about it after the draft and a team even said they were going to pick him.
