When I read scouting reports about a kid that's 6-3, and they say he isn't physical, I get concerned, I stay away.
Catenacci is alright, but for a player with that much speed, skill, and grit, he should be a 35-40 goal scorer. Christian Thomas at the same age in less games scored 40 goals. Catenacci scored 26. Not that impressed.
All things being equal, if I'm going power forward in the 1st round its McNeill. Hgher upside. Brings the grit with his size and skill.
And if im going smaller with speed in the 2nd round, Nieto has the speed and skill, but also plays a complete game, and did it as a 17 year old playing against 20-22 year olds. Plays in all situations, heady player. He could grow an inch or two by the time he goes pro, like Stepan did. And actually play at about 6 feet as a pro.
Im not ragging, just making conversation.
