Shut down d-men who rely on size take a lot longer to develop. He could be Plante. But he could also be Scott Hannan, who was very good in his prime. If he is the latter, it doesn't matter if it takes him a bit longer to develop, he will be a valuable piece when he gets here.
I think a lot of it has to do with the talk about his skating to be honest. Big defensive defenseman with skating questions is not something fans get overly excited about. I don't know much about him, but he seems to be a smart guy and I will take a smart defenseman anyday because they know how to overcome their physical limitations. It's not like he was THAT much of a reach where he was drafted either, just some sexier names on the board.
