You really have to dig below the surface with these small, skilled guys. Many of them can make it but there are also those that can't. With that being said, in my first live viewing of him today he looked decent not prepared to say too much more than that.
You make good points and a big part that separates certain prospects from others is the interview process and getting to know the kids. Do they have great drive, are they character kids? That can take a somewhat undersized kid from a 3rd round pick to a 2nd rounder pretty easily.
