So what if Zeke is a rookie? And they didn't draft him #4 overall, given that he's a prototype 3-down back, to have him in a timeshare with Morris or McFadden. Behind that line, coupled with his skills as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker, there's no way he should fall past the first round.
@Walter I don't see how you think Fitz is "fine" there, given the fact you pointed out Palmer's diminishing arm strength and generally not liking older players. I get he's produced with awful QBs and they're not running him deep anymore, but even so, the point you made about AP apply even more to Fitz. Bad pick
Will have to better handle contact at the next level
Summary: Irving has been as good as advertised since arriving at Duke in a similar way to what John Wall brought to the floor at Kentucky last season. Offensively, he can do it all and shows a tremendous skill set for a young point guard. He should be a one-and-done as he will be one of the top picks in the 2011 NBA Draft.
Player Comparison: Chris Paul. Irving really has a mixture of attributes of a lot of NBA point guards but can probably closely be compared to Chris Paul. Irving is further along as a scorer at this point of his career but is not the distributor that Paul has become. Either way, this high of a comparison backs up my thought that Irving can be an elite NBA point guard like CP3.
