Smith is a going to be a good player and he was a 1st rounder.
Mrazek actually has 18 AHL games under his belt and he's not really that small, listed at 6'1".
But, like you said, most of the players listed are 2nd round picks. Chicago's had a pretty strong record when it comes to the 2nd round aswell, at least recently, with Johns, Saad, Clendening and Pirri all looking quite promising, especially Saad. I'm also a big fan of Fournier, despite his lack of production in the 'Q' this year and they've also picked up Morin and J.Hayes, who are both 2nd round picks, though obviously not drafted by Chicago.
