You do realize that Paul led the ACC in steals per game (2.38) this year, right?
(By comparison, Felton was at 2.00 and Jarrett Jack was 1.81)
Paul also led the ACC in Assists / Turnovers, at 2.38.
(Felton was 1.93, and Jack was 1.32).
At 5'11", Chris will have issues with bigger guards posting him up. But his quick hands, quick feet, and ability to get off the ground (he can dunk) will allow him to be a solid defender in the NBA, IMO.
