The biggest obstacle for Archer is that he's played for West Indies U19s, otherwise he wouldn't be subject to the same qualification period I believe.

Nope it is the ECB 7 year ruling.
It is three years for all other sports and could be for Archer in cricket. But it isn't.

I worry he will become the next Graeme Hick.

Wouldn't be surprised if Archer decided he wants to play for the West Indies considering the amount of cash he can obtain from the t20 circus. He could easily do what Narine does, play a handful of t20s for WI, and earn millions from various franchises

Surprised Amla was overlooked. He was quite sensational last term.

I think it's even more apparent now that being the best in the world doesn't even guarantee you to be picked in the IPL. It all comes down to your T20 skills and form, not your test rankings.

Amla averages 34 with a s/r of 130 in t20, so he's not exactly a stiff. But it seems to biffer are more that flavour for the 2018 ipl

Interesting you say that other sports is 3 years as I had seen a conversation between Luke Wright and people  on twitter and when questioned about Archer he said 3 years. Maybe they are pushing for it to be changed?

It is one of the gerat ruiners of international rugby - you have, especially, Ireland going over to South Africa and recruiting project players to bolster their national side.  I want Archer to play for England as much as anyone - but I can see why the rules are as they are.
