Not sure about Dave being an under achiever, was 6th in GP and 8th in points from his draft class.

He was better defensively than some people are giving him credit for here as well, especially later on in his career.

Off the top of my head probably closer to the top 75% of #2 picks over the years than 50%. (pre 2000ish as top end drafting has gotten better in recent times)

Sure he could have been better but that can be said of almost any player .
