He is still growing. He fills out that frame. Leave him in school for another 2 years. Nieves has everything you want. Big. Strong. Fast. Can play in the middle.
Yeah, I was watching that too Rangerboy. I thought lets see if he comes back and learns from that one....which he did. He's got the size to wedge himself in there and battle more. He's got Berenson looking over his shoulder. Could not ask for a better developmental situation. This is a very good pick. It will be interesting to see how he develops from here. I like the kid on his wing as well. Gotta run that one down and see who owns him.
