Jamal Watson - W
Axel Blomqvist - W

Really like Merkley and Erkamps and I would be surprised if they didn't get drafted. Blomqvist and Watson have both shown flashes at points so I think they have a chance, albeit not sure how good of one. Any responses would be appreciated!
Have had the chance to see them several times.

I think my favorite of the 4 is definitely Jamal Watson. He's got elite speed, pretty good hands and plays physical. Just needs a more consistent effort.

I would say:

Erkamps - 4th or 5th round pick
Watson - 4th or 5th round pick (I would rate him a bit higher)
Merkley - 7th round pick
Blomqvist - 7th round pick, maybe undrafted
