While early entry is the norm for most top tier NCAA prospects, in most drafts there are more seniors drafted than any other class of player. In 2012, the first senior chosen was Tyler Zeller at 15. While there were only 4 taken in the first round, 21 were drafted overall, by far the most of any class. There is still great value in choosing a player who has taken their time with the college process. Some players bloom late and some teams can really benefit from a player who has matured mentally as well as physically through 4 years of college experience.
