I'd also tend to see Syndergaard as the equivalent of Jesse Blacker, not Reilly. He was not our top pitching prospect (Aaron Sanchez is almost unanimously viewed as a better prospect, and even Roberto Osuna might be higher on some lists), but he's definitely a really good prospect.
Syndergaard is WAY better as a prospect in comparison to Blacker. Noah has ace front of the rotation upside and was awesome last season while Blacker projects more into a 2nd pairing - 3rd pairing guy who really hasnt done much since being drafted.

Also theres really no scouting place that ranks Osuna ahead of Syndergaard.
