To answer your questions in

To answer your questions in order, in my opinion.....

1) Vesely

2) Minnesota

3) if your talking about THIS sites lotto, Jordan Hamilton or Donatas Motiejunas

4) probably either Bismack Biyombo or Chris Singleton

5) imo, Iman Shumpert

6) again, if you mean THIS sites draft, most likely Chandler Parsons or Nolan Smith

7) hmm, perhaps Minnesota since no one really knows whats going on in Khans mind

8) define Mr. Irrelevant(if you mean 'last player drafted', I'll go with Andrew Goudelock)

9) Not sure if he's on the rise, but he's been getting hyped lately, so I'll go with Ben Hansbrough

What Projected Top 5 Player

What Projected Top 5 Player will not go Top 5 (Irving,Williams, Knight, Kanter, Vesely)? Vesely is the only logical answer here because the other four are guaranteed top five picks.

Which Lotto team will trade their pick? Minnesota would be the obvious choice but I'm going with the Jazz at 12. There are probably a number of teams, the Bulls in particular, who might want to trade into the lottery and I don't think the Jazz would be too excited about their options at 12 when perhaps they could get a later first round pick and a player for the #12.

Which projected Lotto prospect will not be in the Lotto? Tristan Thompson. A bit undersized and if not taken by the right team could slide past #14.

Which mid-late 1st Round prospect will slide in the Lotto? Klay Thompson. Originally a mid to late first rounder but is climbing on everyone's draft boards.

Which projected 2nd Round prospect will make the biggest leap in the 1st Round ala (Craig Brackins)? Nolan Smith. He won't go early in the first round but it will be hard for a team to pass on his intangibles, especially a team like the Bulls.

Which projected 1st Rounder will slide out of the 1st Round ala (Hassan Whiteside)? Trey Thompkins. I said all along that this kid, along with Travis Leslie, should have gone back to school and when he slides to the 2nd round on draft night then he will realize it too.

Which Combine workout "warrior" will go 1st Round? Iman Shumpert. Just too good of a talent to pass up.

Which team will have the most shocking selection & whom may the prospect be? Chris Singleton #9 to the Bobcats. The Bobcats need quality wings with the trade of Gerald Wallace and the impending departure of Stephen Jackson. Singleton will bring defense and that ACC pedigree that Jordan loves so much.

Who will be Mr. Irrelevant of the 2011 NBA Draft? David Lighty. Senior who can play but is older and doesn't "wow" scouts with anything.

Which prospect "on the RISE" will go undrafted? Deandre Liggins. I hate to say it because I want him to succeed but it wasn't a good idea for him to leave early and while he may catch on somewhere because of his length and defensive ability, he might not hear his name called. (I would love for my Hawks to take him though)

What Projected Top 5 Player

What Projected Top 5 Player will not go Top 5 (Irving,Williams, Knight, Kanter, Vesely)? - I'd say Kanter. I think the Cavs select Irving, and the T-Wolves choose Williams, and the Jazz either select a guard, or trade their pick. Chad Ford says that the Cavs have been "cooling" on Kanter since their workout with him, and I've heard the like Val more. I've also been hearing that Vesely could get picked in the top 5. Ford and DX's mock both have Kanter falling out of the top-5.

Which Lotto team will trade their pick? - I've heard that Utah is interested in trading down, or trading for a vet PG, so I think they're the team most likely to trade their pick.

Which projected Lotto prospect will not be in the Lotto? - Donatas Motiejunas

Which mid-late 1st Round prospect will slide in the Lotto? - Chris Singleton

Which projected 2nd Round prospect will make the biggest leap in the 1st Round ala (Craig Brackins)? - Josh Selby

Which projected 1st Rounder will slide out of the 1st Round ala (Hassan Whiteside)? - Kyle Singler

Which Combine workout "warrior" will go 1st Round? - Iman Shumpert

Which team will have the most shocking selection & whom may the prospect be? - If Utah doesn't trade down, I can see them picking Jimmer at #3. He's been killing workouts, even against the top prospects, and he likely won't be available at #12.

Who will be Mr. Irrelevant of the 2011 NBA Draft? Cory Joseph

Which prospect "on the RISE" will go undrafted? - DeAndre Liggins

Which projected 1st Rounder will slide out of the 1st Round ala (Hassan Whiteside)? - Kyle Singler / Nolan Smith

Which Combine workout "warrior" will go 1st Round? - Iman Shumpert

Which team will have the most shocking selection & whom may the prospect be?- I'm sure it will be Minne doing something "shocking" by either straight drafting Irving with the pg jam or moving down in the draft and then reaching on someone like Biyombo.

Who will be Mr. Irrelevant of the 2011 NBA Draft? - Lacedarius Dunn

Which prospect "on the RISE" will go undrafted? - Deandre Liggins

haha you might have a point

haha you might have a point there. I do spend a lot of my off my time off work on the net. Just seems like you posted a lot of questions that are like "wtf?" answers(I never once thought of someone rising in the draft just because of a great combine he had, just sayin). And maybe it's my problem, but I always thought of "Mr. Irrellevant" as.......well, just that; IRRELLEVANT!! lol at least until that guy shows me something during the season. Let the negative votes begin lol.
