I'm a big fan of Ritchie and have been promoting him for a while, but if we're picking top 3 it has to be one of Ekblad/Reinhart/Bennett. 4 is the earliest I'd take Ritchie. It's unfortunate that power forwards are harder to project and take longer to develop, but it is the case. He could end up a 3rd liner if development doesn't go as planned, whereas the other 3 are locks to be very good 2C/decent 1 C, or good #2 Dman/possibly #1 Dman.
