After mock drafts had him going as high as 11th, Kosta Koufos fell to the 23rd pick in tonight's draft.

My first thought, which an ESPN talking head sort of alluded to, is that Jerry Sloan might eat Kosta for lunch if the big Greek doesn't step up the toughness in a hurry.

Koufos was the 9th freshman taken in the first 23 picks and the 6th center taken overall.

Many thought Koufos wouldn't fall past the Cavs at #19 but they opted for J.J. Hickson from NC State.

Loathe him or not, what do you think about his future in Salt Lake?

Think he can hang with Sloan if he just stands out on the perimeter launching jumpers?
