Seems to me he fell due to teams wanting to take defensemen. Look at the 2012 nhl draft.
1 Nail Yakupov (LW)
2 Ryan Murray (D)
3 Alex Galchenyuk (C)
4 Griffin Reinhart (D)
5 Morgan Rielly (D)
6 Hampus Lindholm (D)
7 Mathew Dumba (D)
8 Derrick Pouliot (D)
9 Jacob Trouba (D)
10 Slater Koekkoek (D)
11 Filip Forsberg (RW)

Similar to how we got the #1 North American Skater in the 2013 nhl draft. Top three wanted offensive pieces. So we picked him at #4.
