My buddy and I were talking about this on the way to Sarnia on Thurs. That's exactly the point I brought up; we draft smaller guys in hopes they become Ellis 2.0, but it's extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do that. Instead of making an Ellis 2.0, they need to make a (insert future star) 1.0.
