Yeah, I remember everyone saying the same thing about Noah.
Most, if not all 19-20 year olds who get drafted into the NBA are scrawny. They are still kids after all.
What matters is heart and work ethic. Watching him play, you can tell he loves what he does and is going to bust his ass to get better.
That's why high-motor guys are so respected throughout the league. On top of that, this kids got an endless wingspan, a VERY decent PnR game (especially for a youngin') and pretty fucking good hands.
