There is no shortage of legitimate question mark players in the 2010 NBA Draft. The guys that I feel are the toughest to judge are: (in no order)
- Daniel Orton - NBA body and shot blocking ability but limited playing time at Kentucky. Can he really be more efficient?
- Eric Bledsoe - I'm not convinced that his game will be THAT much improved from his pedestrian college numbers. A .341 EFR rarely translates to any NBA success. Is he really better than say - Daniel Gibson?
- A.J. Ogilvy - In his case - he was VERY efficient but he didn't pass the "eye test". Should I dismiss his numbers and keep him outside the draft altogether?
- Lazar Hayward -(pictured)
Why do I like him so much more than everyone else?
- Jon Scheyer - Can he ever get in an NBA game? Or is he defense not good enough?
- Matt Bouldin - Passed the "eye test" but his numbers were never really as good as his skill. Is he not dynamic enough?
- Jared Quayle - Am I the only guy in the world that believes the Utah State Point Guard is a player? Did the Utah Jazz work him out just to please locals.
- Ryan Richards - He is efficient but his body of work is limited? Is he just a mirage?
- Omar Samhan - By raw data he would be drafted but can he 'show and recover' defensively?
- DeMarcus Cousins - Should I really just dismiss what my gut says about him because the guy can really play?
- Paul George - Can a guy that had a losing record at Fresno State really help an NBA team?
- Landry Fields - Why don't more scouts like him? Is he too slow?
- Kevin Seraphin - Is it becuase he's foreign and plays Power Forward that all seem to assume he is the next Serge Ibaka?
- Marqus Blakely - Am I too far out on a limb with Blakely at 30?
- Hassan Whiteside - No player in this draft has more long term potential. Are scouts really thinking 'long-term' with Whiteside?
