He could easily beat out any of the other guys going down in a scouts view IMO. I'd actually see us taking Galchenyuk over Yakupov to be totally honest, if it was us picking.
Wellll, judging from Chevy's description of the trade news I have a feeling Pouliot wasn't above Trouba on the Jets' list, LOL.

Taking a gander at what was out there and the emphasis Chevy put on Trouba being "way higher," I'd bet Trouba was somewhere around #3 to #5 too.

Of those on the board, I'd GUESS that they had Galchenyuk, Yakupov, Murray and maybe Reinhart higher. So maybe #5, but they probably didn't go into it expecting to have a crack at Yak, Murray or Galchy so the fact that Trouba was there at 9 would explain how pleased they were. He was probably the #1 or #2 that they thought they could realistically get, is my guess.
