Nurse and Zadorov are still very raw, so still have a lot of physical and skills development potential left in them. Ristolainen is more developed than both Nurse and Zadorov physically and skill wise, but less so than Pulock. Imo, Pulock is as finished a product as there is in this draft. Some teams will like that, but not likely at the expense of potential home runs like Nurse, Zadorov, and Ristolainen.
Overall, I like Pulock a lot, but just have trouble seeing him developing much more than, say, a Travis Hamonic type, with better offense but not as good defense.
If he goes high, I could see the hometown team, the Jets, taking him at 13.
