Chevy has a lot of picks this June, and I hope he uses them wisely, as this draft could be the TSN turning point for this franchise.
I think the abundance of picks should help them avoid overvaluing size. Picking size over skill is safe - pure skill tends to be boom or bust more than size. With more picks I'd hope they take more risks and aim at some flashier players in to the 2nd round, while still sticking with good character players who want to be here.
