IMO Vail is a vanilla prospect who is decent in a lot of areas but doesn't stand out in any. I have been watching the game for a long time and have seen many players like him fade away in relatively short order.

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.
