Scouts ARE saying Jordan will be as good, if not better than PK. and I don't want another team to tap into that talent pool. I want as much of it as we can get.
The problem is that PK had an unreal progression and if you were to redo the draft now, PK would be a top 5 selection. Jordan is rated in the bottom half of the first, sometimes early second. He would have to progress at the same pace as PK, and yeah they're brothers but it's still unlikely.
