But he had some brutal injuries. Not many prospects could survive blowing out their knees in back-to-back seasons after being drafted.
I remember this draft - this kid was hyped with a capital 'H'. I thought for sure he was a top 10 pick, if not top 5. People screamed when he dropped, but it looks like pro scouts do know what they are doing. I learned something from this case.

Now when I see a player like Gigorenko fall I no longer say 'steal of the draft', I say 'where there is smoke, there is fire'.
