Exactly.

If I remember correctly Sauer was projected to be a first rounder but his injury susceptibility dropped him to the second round.

McIlrath is safely Sauer+, hence the higher draft position.

Obviously not all 1st rounders are homerun picks, we all know why NYR picked him so high, and that other teams only a few spots lower had him on their radar as well.

Scott Stevens is a lofty goal, some even threw Weber's name out there a couple summers back. IMO Sauer with a bit more upside is a very reasonable expectation... Darian Hatcher or Vlad Konstintinov if we get lucky.
