He's looking better and better as a top 3 pick in-my-opinion and possesses a greater offensive ability than Davis. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go at #2 after his combine measurements.
I agree with this completely.
Those measurements, particularly that 7-3+ wingspan are huge for him. And I think he's firmly entrenched himself as the second tier of this draft, perhaps with MKG, at this point.
