Morin has a ton of upside. He was ranked 4th by Redline report.
I think too many are pegging this guy as at best a #4 defensive defensemen when that is not the case. He is raw but he is also only 17, more than a year younger than Jones. He is as much upside as any defensemen, outside of Jones, in this draft. Just because he was a relative unknown to start the year, doesn't make him a stiff compared to Nurse, who everyone loves but has been compared to Coburn who everybody wants to trade, and Zadarov.
