If he had a nasty streak and/or he was more of a **** disturber than that might change things. He seems like one of those prospects that is easy to like but tough to favourably project. He was worth the gamble at the draft as sometimes players like him suddenly make a huge jump in their development. That is still possible but is becoming less likely.
It kind of reminds me of former picks like Maxwell and Milroy who people on here really liked but they just never worked out.
