As with most drafts, it is very difficult to project how it will fold past the 4th and 5th rounds but the opening three rounds are very intriguing.
I absolutely love the top 15 of this draft class. In any other year (including last years), players I have ranked in the 1-15 range (and maybe even further...up to 20) would be considered top 10 talents. It's exciting.
Thanks for the Q
Interesting to hear your take on this as I literally just read an article saying that most scouts thought this class wasn't near as strong as it initially looked to be and that outside of the top-10 most teams would be looking at 3rd/4th line players.
