Draft profiles: Darius miller, 6'8, 235 lbs, SF, Kentucky, Senior
Miller's been an under-rated and unselfish piece for the last four seasons with Kentucky.  For other teams in college basketball, Miller would have more than likely been a low number 1/high number 2 type scorer.  It is ridiculous that for a college team, Miller was a 6th man, but with their semi-pro type talent, he adjusted to the role well.  Miller’s game is built to be solid and should translate at the next level...

Draft profiles: Will barton, 6'6, 180 lbs, SG, Memphis, Sophomore
A Heralded recruit two years ago, Barton possesses a lot of pizzazz to go along with great athleticism at the shooting guard position.  While a good talent, can he use his talent effectively in the NBA...

Draft profiles: Tyshawn Taylor, 6'4, 180 lbs, PG, Kansas, Senior

Draft profiles: Tyshawn Taylor, 6'4, 180 lbs, PG, Kansas, Senior
Tyshawn Tyalor's a tantalizing point guard prospect that spent four years at Kansas due to immaturity in his game on and off the court.   Taylor has the size/speed to be a very valuable point guard at the next level, but can he maximize it?  He also has the ability to be a combo guard in spurts...

Draft profiles: Jared Cunningham, 6'4, 200 lbs, SG, Oregon State
Coming into the draft, Cunningham might be the most under-rated, athletic freak shooting guard prospect around.  He's one of those players that probably sneaks into the late first round due to his explosiveness and potential while still needing considerable development...

Draft profiles: Marquis Teague, 6'2, 185 lbs, PG, Kentucky

Draft profiles: Marquis Teague, 6'2, 185 lbs, PG, Kentucky
Teague's a very fast point guard coming out after his freshman year at Kentucky.  Considering the hype coming into a Kentucky that won the championship, he did merely okay for a loaded team.  While being their only ball-handler, Teague shows nice flashes of speed in the open court, but also limitations when his shot is not falling or he struggled to get to the rack...

Draft profiles: John Jenkins, 6'4, 215 lbs, SG, Vanderbilt

Draft profiles: Orlando johnson, 6'5, 220 lbs, SG, UCSB

Draft profiles: Orlando johnson, 6'5, 220 lbs, SG, UCSB
Johnson's a sleeper pick from a low to mid-major type school, UCSB.   He's strong as an ox, has a tremendous wingspan at 6’11, and is a solid shooter.  He overcomes a lot of weaknesses with a solid all-around game, but most importantly, his will to win...

Draft profiles: Meyers Leonard, 7'1, 240 lbs, C, Illinois

Draft profiles: Meyers Leonard, 7'1, 240 lbs, C, Illinois
Meyers is one of the most puzzling, if not the most puzzling prospect in this draft.  Myers stands over seven feet tall with a high level of skills and athletic abilities but needs to prove he can play consistently and reach his potential...

Draft profiles: Kevin murphy, 6'7, 190 lbs., SG, Tennessee Tech
Murphy is one of those late bloomers that is likely to rise up the charts as it gets closer to the draft.  He's an under-rated prospect but will likely impress in individual workouts by the time draft week comes around...

Draft profiles: Tony Wroten, 6'7, 200 lbs, SG/PG, Washington

Draft profiles: Tony Wroten, 6'7, 200 lbs, SG/PG, Washington
Wroten's a silky-smooth lefty combo-guard prospect with one of the more intriguing games in the draft.  One of the most heralded Freshman coming into last year’s NCAA basketball season, he flashed signs of a good players while lacking consistently.  ...
