Morin has the highest upside next to Jones in the draft. His probability of hitting it isn't as good, but how you can say this guy has no upside is beyond me.

The flyers' record with defensemen, specifically 1st round defensemen is horrendous though, so they don't get the benefit of the doubt here from me.
Pitkanen, Sbisa, and Woywitka? All three are/were NHL defenseman. Just because they haven't picked defenseman doesn't mean they don't know how to evaluate them.

Tyler Myers. Was NHL rookie of the year less than two years after he was drafted. Big guys take longer to develop offensively.
