He needs to be eligible

He needs to be eligible first... if not, and he doesn't play for a year then he will go undrafted ala Lenny Cooke, if he does become eligible i have him in the 20 range unless he can prove hes matured

agreeable...to a point. I

agreeable...to a point.

I think if Lance is eligible and can play this year in Cincy, he could be a top 5 pick. I think if he plays well and shows he's a leader....anything is possible.

if he averages about 20

if he averages about 20 points in the Big East I expect he will be a lottery pick

Born Ready

He is the all-time leader in NY high school history. That says something. He will put up 18 points 5 rebounds 4 assists 2 steals a la Tyreke Evans and will be picked 6th. Him Deonta and Yancy Gates will be fine.

He will later be mentioned

He will later be mentioned in the 2010 draft because it's too early too say where who's going to get drafted.

i think he will be on their

i think he will be on their eventually because of his talent but i think he will fall to the end of the first round because of off the court issues

he will put up 19 points, 5 rebounds, and about 2.7 assists this year in college and probably around 1 steal

I think he will go late

I think he will go late lottery, no way he goes top 5. He has to prove he score in a variety of ways not just being more powerful then the defender, he is a step slow and has average athleticism at best.

Harden is crafty though and

Harden is crafty though and he doesn't just bully people to get where he wants, he has a great basketball IQ and can score in every way plus he is a good shooter. Stephenson just uses his strength.

Lance needs to play ball

He needs to stay out of trouble, keep his mind on his money, and his freedom. He is not going to be in college long anyways, drop 17 to 20 on them, make his teamates better instead of being a cancer. He has all the tools just needs some discipline. That coach should stay on his a$$ too. He does those things he's in the lottery.

Too many players with more

Too many players with more talent then him and less issues. Favors, Henry, Wall, Monroe, Aldrich, Aminu, Davis (maybe), George, Warren, Brackins.

Maybe but I think he may just stay quiet and play hard. If he does, I can see him going top 5

we shall see if he puts up

we shall see if he puts up great numbers and thoses players dont live up to expectations then awhole lot changes..monroe and the others are more definate since they have already proved what they can do against strong comp favors henry and wall have more to prove..henry has a very slow first step by the way..not sure if its because of injury or weight but he isnt driving past any athletes..though he has a nice jumper which should help

For Henry, I think it's both

For Henry, I think it's both the weight gain and the car accident but I expect him to regain some of his athleticism this year. Wall has the easiest job of those players because he has so much talent around him that he will be able to do his thing, I promise you Wall goes ahead of Lance next year, there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever.

YupYup...noone said he would

YupYup...noone said he would go over Wall. I think any team that needs A SG will look at Lance or Henry

Lance top 5....I can't see

Lance top 5....I can't see it either really. I see him more in the 8-14 range....assuming he has a good year.

I'm not sure about Henry but what I have seen so far he looks like a late 1st round pick....assuming he plays well as a freshman at Kansas. I think Henry will play 2 years of college ball though and enter the 2011 draft.

I am saying that Wall will

I am saying that Wall will go high no matter what to Josh. He always likes to watch players before his grades them but I have seen him enough to know he won't drop with those other upperclassmen leaving I just can't see Lance going top 5. I could see him going in the 9-15 range.

Henry will be a one and

Henry will be a one and done, it was reported that he wouldn't be in college if it weren't for the rule. I think it would be best for him to stay 2 years, because then he would have a chance to lead KU without Aldrich and Collins but it seems very unlikely.

Well I hope Henry starts

Well I hope Henry starts playing more aggressive. The few times I watched him play he looked kinda soft and a little slow. His jumpshot is pure though and I like lefthanders. Seems to be a pretty smart player too. I just have a feeling he may struggle a bit as a freshman.

with wall seeing him in hs

with wall seeing him in hs is different then seeing him against real competition..is he talented yes..does he have potential yes but you always have to look at the whole book not just the page..one is word of gods schedule wasnt the best. far from it so we will have to see what he does against real competition( holiday anyone) 2. its very well known that he plays at one speed right now and isnt that great of a shooter..will that stop him from being drafted high if he lives up to the potenial..nope..3 is he is a 5th year senior. that wasnt a top player in his 4th year..personally im putting my money on him not going number one..but im sure he will go high reguardless what he does

I will not guarantee he goes

I will not guarantee he goes 1, personally I think Monroe has a very good shot at going 1 next year. I am wondering whether Wall was able to be voted for as a top player in his 4th year? Maybe because he was coming back his couldn't be voted for. He still has loads of talent around him regardless so he will plenty of chances to beat his man.

I see Wall having a huge

I see Wall having a huge year personally. With that dribble-drive offense that Calipari runs it fits Wall to perfection. Wall should have a ton of assists, and get to the free throw line a lot. I think he will average something like 15 pts 6 asst 2stls. As long as he shoots a pretty high % from the field I think he goes #1. His speed and athleticism is top notch.

I agree with gatorheels

When I saw Henry play he did look a little slow. Josh Huestis is right He will need to use that jumper with pump fakes to get by defenders because he does not look quick to me either.
