So you're essentially asking why actual GMs/teams didn't have him rated as highly as the draft "experts" who don't actually draft the players?
This is the major sticking point for most of our draft discussions. Find the real answer to this, and we'll know more about definitions for words like "reach" or "getting cute" or "first round grade," etc.
Directly on topic, perhaps he simply isn't good enough to warrant being taken there in spite of what some "anal-ists" thought.
