Obviously a premature suggestion, but I'm too anxious to actually wait to see him play during regular season to make my rankings lol
I thought Ceci should have been picked ahead of players like Rielly, Dumba, Pouliot and some of the other scatbacks, but it all comes back to philosophy and preference once again. The thing that separates Pulock from Ceci is Pulock is looking have a 2nd solid offensive year while Ceci only had one. Ceci was a bit of a late bloomer but a solid pick nonetheless.
As for your question, I think Pulock will be at worst a #2 Dman. The question of him being a #1 Dman still needs to be answered somewhat, as we will need to see if he can continue to do what he has been doing. But if you were asking me now, I would draft him to become the #1 Dman of my team.
