I think you're the one reaching then. Having 3 teams considering him in their top 5 does not exclude the other 27 teams from considering him around where he was picked.

Edit: I'd also say that if even one other team sees him that high, there is obviously something there they like. As a late riser, there were going to be teams that saw more of him, and thought more highly of him vs. other teams who might have seen him earlier but paid more attention to other prospects. The bottom line is that multiple sources saw him in the top 5, and a couple of scouts felt he was a steal at 6th overall(seems a stretch, but it's still quite a statement). I don't see how that makes him a reach. In fact, I think if the scout rankings had him higher, you wouldn't consider him a reach at all, even though teams do their own scouting anyway. You're calling him a reach because of what you think others think.
