Again, look at their pictures. Rocco was always "thicker." He never had documented weight problems. And his body has filled out as most scouts thought it would. Tolch is a completely different story which is why offda and I are actually on the same page for once. That should tell you something.
Many young Russians come over early and still leave. Burmistrov just did it.

He would never have gone super high, but if he was a 5th round talent, is it so crazy to believe that would make him drop 2-3 rounds? I don't think so.

I'm not arguing he is remotely similar to Grimaldi. All I am saying is that it is not unheard of for a kid at 17/18 to be skinny and then slowly add some strength and weight over the next 4 years.
