Also takes up a lot of space at 6'5", but is still pretty quick and athletic.
I think Poulin looked better....movement and positionally. Nilsson impressed me with his movement and he had the jitters early on but calmed down, much like Poulin who I always imagined throwing up on the runway earlier in his career.

I dunno....both might stick around. But I think the nod goes to Poulin this year. Reiter I think has a shot, though.....if he shows up big the next week and change. I wouldn't be surprised if the dark horse won the backup after what was said during camp about who was hustling the most.
