Camara was a former 1st-round OHL draft pick, so he always had the skill/tools- was lacking in the toolbox (and I don't believe he has the natural hockey sense to maximize his offensive talent but that's just me). I don't think any who truly know or have seen him will argue that for a 1st-rounder, he was woefully underachieving/not meeting expectations until his fourth OHL season. Trends are not working in his favor, but who knows? He could be an outlier.

You should check out the thread on the Bruins prospects for an interesting discussion on Camara and why I'm not buying just yet. He was a reach, but at least he's justifying what the Boston scouts saw in him two years ago.
