Where would this guy rank amongst: Clemens, Wolf and Nomo?

Im thinking with his age/skill he'd be a great SP for a kpr lg, but would you draft him before any of the other 3 mentioned?

Picture Kevin Brown if he could stay healthy...this kid's stuff/makeup is that good. Assuming he stays healthy, he'll be a top 10 SP for a long time. I'd take him ahead of those three you mentioned

He is a great young pitcher but expect somewhat of a second year slump.

This year I would rate them

Wolf
Nomo
Webb
Clemens

Everyone says this. Why should we expect a second year slump? Just becasue that is the thing to say?

Webb over Nomo and those other guys. I've been watching a lot of live drafts on yahoo (yeah I've been bored) and Webb has generally been going around the 9-11 round. If you can grab Webb in the 9th or 10th round I think you've gotten a steal.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?

Not because that is the thing to say but because that is the thing that does invaribly happen. A lot of young pitchers hit the majors and hitters are facing them for the first time and get blown away. Dontrelle Willis did it as well last year but when he came up against the same hitters again later in the season he wasn't so dominant. Webb had an incredible rookie year and if he doesn't slump on those numbers ERA 2.84 and k / ip ratio Whip 1.15 I am sure most people would be very suprised. I guess that is why he is only currently avg. ranked 23rd on pitcher draft sheets but had Top 10 stats last season. Also when Randy goes down again ( with that bone on bone thing) Webb will be the Ace of that Arizona outfit and that will just add to the increased pressure the kid will be under. It all adds up to somewhat of a second year slump. Nothing major but certainly worth considering when drafting. The other thing is he pitchers in a hitters park where last season his ERA was a more realistic 3.43.

I know it is only anecdotal evidence but he didn't look too flash when he faced the Rockies late last season after dominating them in two starts previously in early July.
