are the reason he was not drafted.
undrafted guys like this get chances to show their stuff. if people understood the process of drafting 18yr old kids, you would realize that there is a process and standards. this kid, unfortunately, is below minimums and thus hes not projectable as a pro.
on the other hand, if he were canadian, he may have been taken late.
im hoping we offer him.
Being thin isn't a huge problem at that age as long as he has the frame to put on more muscle weight. At 5'7", that's obviously a huge concern. At 5'9", it would be less of a concern.
Tambellini is listed anywhere between 6'2" and 6'4" and between 160 and 174 lbs. I'd say he's just as slight, or more, than Tolchinski. But Tambellini has the frame to fill out.
