Watched Noel last night. I was impressed. I'm gonna watch Len tonight and decide who I like better.

He was impressive. Offensively, I think he is slightly better than Noel. As far as rebounding and defense, no question that Noel is way ahead of him. I think Len has a lot of potential, but mostly as an offensive guy. The Brook Lopez comparisons are not far off.
However, when I look at Noel, I always see KG. I know that is a pretty hefty projection on him, but that, IMO, is truly his ceiling. His intelligence level on both ends is very high. He can make great passes on offense and knows when to go up with the ball strong. On defense, his instincts are tremendous. He seems to always be in the right place for the rebound and can block shots with the best of them. His length combined with his jumping ability and instincts combine for him to be a force down low. He definitely needs to put some meat on his bones and needs to work on some offensive moves (he did show a nice little running hook to his left that didn't drop but looked good, however). I think Noel's ceiling is very high.

I'm not expecting the complete package out of anyone in this draft, but I'd like to feel
comfortable that whoever we take can at least do one thing well already, either rebound, defense or scoring.

would not be happy with Zeller
and the Mclemore/Shabazz choice is nice, but we will continue to ignore the 3,000 lb elephant in the room if we do go for the "scorer"

I will say this, Len is the better rebounder and it's not even close.
We will have to agree to disagree.
