IMO, Davis is a once in a decade type of player and we probably won't see the all around package he brings for a long, long time.
Expecting poythress to have the year MKG did and be a top 5 pick are quite lofty expectations.
As for Davis, dudes arguably the best shot blocker in the last decade, and first freshman since durant to win Naismith. Also gets the MOP award of the FF, and iirc first freshman sec POY since??? To expect Noel's to come in and match that is insane.
Both poythress and noels will be good, but I don't expect either to match the level of play of MKG & Davis.
