I'd agree, but I think we've gotten past the point where we're looking at major impact players of any sort. As you said, Kivel looks like he's got a nice arm, but I'm very reluctant to support a "late bloomer" who missed most of his last season with a torn ACL. Is there any information you can give regarding his mechanics?
