This.
Most picks later than #10 overall take a few years to develop. Any player taken out of the first round that is under 23 can not be considered a bust yet. Some of those guys were taken later because they needed to physically, mentally, or game wise mature. Some take 5 or 6 years in the minors to become useful Nhl players. Every year there are some exceptions but that is mostly luck.
