Kershaw wasn't and still isn't this purely talented.  He does not throw 100 MPH, he does have an awesome curveball, but was not ever in consideration for #1 overall that I remember. 

Yeah, Giolito would have to work really hard to be as good a pitcher as Kershaw, but he is more gifted than Kershaw.

Taylor was drafted at 19, and I don't think he had this kind of talent.  Giolito is already 3 inches taller at 17 than Taylor was full grown.

The problem with Taylor was that he got himself hurt. Foolish kid.
