A team like Colorado might throw him into that spot simply because of their current position, but under the hypothetical situation that we had the first pick and took him, IMO he would go back to Portland, or at best play bottom pairing minutes.
He's more physically ready than Doug Hamilton, should be able to play #3-4 minutes right away.
