He may be a work in progress but the defence position at the NHL level is the most difficult to master at a young age. Doughty is the exception, not the rule. Different players progress at different rates. I think that some of the Atlanta fans here are guilty of assuming that past performance is indicative of future results. There is a reason the kid was drafted so highly.
