If Kristo and McIlrath haven't made it yet, they're likelihood of doing so is very slim.
Lol at saying mcilrath is unlikely to make it because he hasent yet. He's 21 years old.

And lately from what I've seen he is outplaying allen.

It's how each of us defines potential.

If you're defining potential to mean greatest chance of succeeding, Kristo has no chance at being #1, which most people tend to believe.

If you're defining potential to mean highest ceiling, then Kristo is arguably #1.
Yes it's true, it's entirely dependent on the criteria you use in evaluating a player. For me, though, and a lot of others, Kristo possesses neither the highest upside nor the greatest likelihood or reaching that upside.

If you go back and look at the prospect polls from over the winter, Kristo didn't receive double-digit votes until round five, and eventually went seventh (with only 37% of the vote). So when you consider that a majority of the board had him ranked somewhere in the six-eight range, it's easy to see why there's such "outrage" at Leslie ranking him number one overall.

Kristo at the top is very different than the board consensus, and that causes some emotional responses.
