1. Using the fourth overall as the example since we know it's on the table, I'd take whichever of Gormley/Fowler is still on the board. In other words, defense.

2. In an ideal world, it'd be McKegg. But barring a trade-up, I'd target one of the bigger, rugged rearguards (Tinordi, Petrovic) or Brock Nelson failing all else.

I love Pysyk's intelligence as much as anyone but he's been in the league for two and a quarter years and has yet to put on much mass. I don't pretend to know why that's not happening, but you'd have to think his agent or somebody would have been in his ear a while back about bulking up.

1) On most people's lists- and I think on the draft board- you'll see McKegg and Gudbranson essentially switched (Gudbranson in the teens and McKegg in the 20s) and I understand the logic. But I'm projecting five-six years out and I really think McKegg will prove himself to be a top-fifteen player from this class.

2) Cehlin's definitely not 'projected' that high, but he's a year older than the rest of his class and is that much closer to making an impact for somebody.
