Not to say he doesnt have top pairing potential, but people were rating him above others simply based on the Can Russ series where he was still outplayed by Murray
Many people see Murray as the 'safe pick' (ie. Luke Schenn) in the draft. He has top 4 potential, but it's very unclear how much potential he actually has. Rielly however has the most offensive potential of the defensemen in the draft. He's also good defensively, which gives him a chance to be more of an impact player than Murray.

It's nothing against Murray, just being happy with what we have.
