I still believe WCS and Mickeys ability to come from the weak side and block shots as well as frustrating their man trumps all other SEC defenders.
I would agree that those guys' shot-blocking ability is impressive; but would argue that both guys benefit from their team's ability to keep 2 center-sized guys in the game almost at all times, especially UK, with Randle, WCS, and Johnson.
That enables 1 guy to cover the other team's center while the other center/forward tees off on shooters in the paint.
Young is counted on to pretty much do all that by himself, as our taller forwards don't play that role... Yeguete isn't athletic enough to be a shot-blocker at all; DFS is more like a tall wing who's frequently out on the perimeter setting up for 3's; and while Prather can jump out of the building, he's still only 6'6" and has a slight build.
