Well most rankings I've seen Sorensen have him in the mid-second, so if we can (move up a couple of spots maybe) I would want to try and get him with our 2nd.

I don't really like the boom/bust picks until after the 2nd round, especially this year.

Look at the top 60 from Bobby Mac, I'd say the majority of the guys listed from 31-50 would have been 1st's or very early 2nd's last year.

Get two studs in the top 60, then start swinging for the fences.
Well I guess it depends. There are a lot of guys I like who will likely be available in the 2nd that I don't consider boom/bust, but still have a high ceiling. But in general I would rather draft guys with a high ceiling but who have fallen due to injury concerns, KHL worries, etc in the later rounds.
