Samuel Morin was an interesting first pick for the Flyers. The 6'6" defenseman is a towering physical presence in his own end, but he has some question marks surrounding the rest of his game.
The easy (but misguided) comparisons are Chris Pronger, Zdeno Chara and Tyler Myers because of their comparable heights, but style-wise, Morin plays more like Luke Schenn than any of them.
The Quebec native is more of a hitter and punisher and projects as a true defensive defenseman in the NHL who will rack up the hits and clear the net while controlling his zone.
He is actually a relatively smooth skater for his size, but his decision-making and passing are major aspects that need work. Morin's shot is also pretty weak, which means he may not be a power-play quarterback like Pronger or Chara.
At 17 years old, with a lot of room to grow physically and mentally, Morin is still definitely a project and likely won't get to the NHL until the 2016-17 season at the earliest.

Being a Quebec native, it's also probably worth checking out SB Nation's Habs Eyes on the Prize's evaluation of Morin.
