Really this. Unfortunately we live in an age where most top prospects get hyped like crazy and people then expect the to be HOF type players. But true HOF talents only come around every once in a while.
Crazy as this might sound but really the last guy that is a HOF type player was probably Albert Pujols. Since him there have been a lot of really good players but no one that is a lock for the HOF yet. Verlander needs to win a lot more games, Cabrera is probably on track so is Braun. Maybe I am missing someone obvious but the point is very few players come into the league and immediately succeed and put themselves in the position that Harper and Trout have.
