You draft guys like him in the mid rounds and hope they develop like Neil did. You don't waste a 1st round pick on a guy you hope turns into Chris Neil. You use 1st round picks on guys you hope turn into Martin Havlat or Marian Hossa, even if they don't reach that type of potential.
This. Plus Washington picked up Wilson hoping he will be a Lucic type player not a Neil.
