Same thing with Cowen. He was ranked 3rd at some point during his draft year but also got a knee injury.

Also, remember Michalek's knee injury 2 years ago and how it impacted his game even last year?

Knee injuries sometimes take more than a year to readjust. Stone will improve.
Are you sure it was a knee injury? All I remember/can find anything on was the concussion and thumb injuries in his draft year.
