Thanks for the info Oilers Chick. Khaira is by far the most intriguing Oiler prospect to me because I know so little about him and the measurables seem like a good fit. The fact that he was so underscouted leading up to the draft always makes you hopefull that a gem may have slipped through the cracks.
If i recall properly, he was a midget just a few years back and had a huge growth spurt in the last year or two into the height he is at today - seems he hasn't caught up physically yet, but given several years in college hopefully that gives him the time to increase his strength to catch up with his size and benefit his overall game.
