I know that stat don't tell the whole story, but not even a potential top 30 selection?
Seems kinda odd to me.
He's also one of the oldest players in the draft, and had a pretty underwhelming year last year, at least stats-wise. I think that's serving as something as a red flag as well.

I wouldn't put him out of my top 30, personally, but I'd bet that's the reason scouts aren't falling over him. If he were born two days earlier we'd be talking about the nice overage season he's putting together right now, you know?
