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
Quick first step allows him to drive past slower bigs
Handling contact inside
Free throw shooting
Very raw offensivly
Developing a well-rounded back to the basket game
Summary: Noel draws a lot of comparisons to Anthony Davis, and while they are both lengthy, athletic, and can protect the rim, Noel doesn't possess near the offensive capabilites that Davis did. Based on the fact that he should still be a senior in high school and has tremendous potential, Noel will still be one of the top picks in the 2013 NBA Draft.
Player Comparison: Joakim Noah.
Noah is not a physical force inside, but uses his shot-blocking ability and activity inside to be very effective. Noel is the same type of player right now, and both guys are fairly limited on the offensive end with ugly looking jump shots.
