i think its too early to judge at college he led his teams in steals  37 or 1.1 at iowa and at northern illinois 1.3 per -that i have read usually translates to good defense...

According to Pelton steal rates are one of the things that translates to success in the NBA in general, not just to good defense.

Also, it is not a per game stat that translates, but steal percentage.  His was 1.9% his last season, which while not terrible, is truly nothing special (wasn't even top 10 in his conference.)
