Save for one or two exceptions, they don't really lack the necessary height to be effective, but some bodily mass. But that should easily be amended in the coming couple of years.
Of course, if we are to view them as the best of the crop and figure whether they'll be NHL hopefuls one day, I'd say some in that list will be fighting an uphill battle due to their size. But it's not like we get 100% turnouts ever. If even two or three of them ever get a decent shot, it's a quite good result.
