That's a good question, and since I'm the guy who assembled most of this, I'll do my best to answer it.....Dawes will be on the Ones2Watch list, which will be up momentarily. IDing and grading these players has gone on since the first week of the season, and it wasn't until everything was pretty well wrapped up that Dawes really started coming on. TI-ming as they say is everything.
As to the questions about Holt, maybe his day will come, and it would be nice if it did. But he's got a bit more to prove, and it didn't help his cause that Gherson began to carry the water during Montoya's injury absences. One big factor in the rankings was this "What do the clubs really think about their own player". In other words, whose rear end is on the line if a guy tabbed sixth overall in 2004 should happen to fizzle out. To me, it seems as though Slats and Co. have a lot to lose, there, especially in light of the unfortunate failure of the Dan Blackburn pick, followed two years later by Jessiman.
