I've always had an interest in this guy, but I never wanted to use a first rounder on him. However, it looks like his stock has fallen this year and scouts have him pegged him in the 2nd round. So if he did fall into the 2nd round, would anyone be against picking him up?
Honestly I don't know enough about him to make much of a call right now but so far this is what I have found out about him.

A miner's son, who is a big defender with good offensive ability and a solid work ethic. Has the size and willingness to play with physicality besides displaying good offensive skills, soft hands and great patience. Is able to close the gap on attacking junior players, but still needs plenty of improvement on his defensive game, with lateral mobility and footwork being essential. Teams will see the parts of his game that are already in place and decide what his high water mark is. Plenty to like in this emerging longer term project.

Since we have two 2nd round picks I wouldn't be against it. It seems like he is ranked early 3rd round currently.
