You can't really judge his end of the season starts as his ability. They were his first starts in months.
I think he is borderline injury prone at this point and I don't think anyone who has followed him doubts his ability when healthy. He missed a dozen starts in 05 and only made 9 starts in 06 as a 25 yo (roughly 33 starts in two seasons).
Most people believe that he is a top 10 pitcher when healthy, thus making him a very risky investment on draft day.
