    Has anyone seen this guy play? Is he just another tall, slow defenceman who will be taken too high because of the "Chara factor".

    McKeen's has him ranked 33rd in their latest top 100.

    Pretty much.

    I'd use a 3rd rounder on him at best. He's not as slow as some of the monsters are and has steadily improved over the year. Started off as one of the WORST college players I have ever seen and developed into someone who was beginning to get servicable. Still looks like he doesn't know how to use his size that well and is still growing into his huge body. If he can improve his skating and lateral movement, he can be a great defender. That's a huge if, though.
