When a 6'4 C is near point/game but doesn't seem to have grown into his body yet (Getzlaf in 2003), teams don't treat them the same as 6' players at point/game paces. There was a lot of questions around draft time regarding whether or not he would be able to skate at an NHL level.

Another reason why Getzlaf fell back in 2003 was apparent attitude issues and rumors of him being a locker room cancer. IIRC ISS had him at #10 in their final rankings.
