Sometimes it's a perfect storm that every team just had somebody else ahead of him. That's what happened to Parise in 2003 and Fowler in 2010. If Anaheim had been picking higher, they would have happily drafted Fowler (who they apparently had #3 on their list).

I'm not sure if it's just an urban legend that teams were simply scared of Anze Kopitar's passport, but the Kings had him ranked #3 as well.
