I'm not surprised he ended up falling out of the 1st round over time (big kids always get a ton of hype at young ages) and I'm not super surprised he lasted through the 2nd either. I was surprised though he didn't go in the 3rd. He has some big time flaws but if he shows the dedication, which apparently he hasn't shown yet, to improve on those flaws then he'll be a steal and I'm just surprised it took that many picks for a team to take that risk.

That said, and I think it was Cagney that said it, his rise, hype, and corresponding fall is like an extreme version of Adam Pineault.
