Drafting is about predicting how a player will turn out in the long-term, not in his freshman year of college. Khaira tallied nice numbers, but there are tons of factors involved when analyzing their progress.
For instance, Jankowski's has a less developed physical frame, he made a more significant jump in levels of play, and he is a better skater.
