Most Underrated Draft Prospects
Warren should succeed at the next level as a SF. He is not extremely athletic although I think people underestimate his athleticism. Warren has proved he has good range on his jumper and can be efficient. He can score on or off the ball has great size and is extremely effective inside the three point line. His assist ratio is terrible similat to Shabazz Muhammad although Bazz wasnt nearly as effective a scorer.
As much as I would love to see Gordon fall into the hands of the Raptors as the latest mock draft suggests I highly doubt that happens. Aaron has too high of an upside to pass up on. I doubt he falls past Phoenix second pick.
Im still not sure how tghese high energy-efficient PF prospects always begin slept on. There is no risk drafting a guy like Harrel he is going to bang, run the floor harf, find loose balls, and play hard d. If your luckybin a couple years he refines his jumpshot and or postgame. Cant sleep on another Faried.
Payne is a unique talent. He has a good jumper and post game but not much strength to get his shot off in post play NBA. Can handle the ball very well for his size and is well experienced can step in and help whoever drafts him. Usually jumpshooting bigs are not great defenders, although Payne will give 100 percent effort on both ends.
The most underrated prospect on the board right now has to be Willey Cauley-Stein. An exteremly athletic 7 footer who blocks, rebounds, and runs the floor like a guard is considered 2nd round material? Come on... he will go around the middle of the 1st round.
I am not sure what everyone is talking about when they praise Willie.what exactly does he do on the collegiate level?He has major trouble scoring he is not even a starter on his team and he doesn't really rebound the ball all that great and he just doesn't have enough post moves to be a elite center in the NBA.
He is just a project IMO.I am a first time poster on here i actually decided to join the forum since the NCAA March Madness is starting up very soon.No offense to Willie i know he does play defense,but i just don't get the hype he gets from some people.Maybe it's his size that everyone is focusing on?
He doesn't have the hype... that's why I brought him up on here. He is limited offensively but so are most centers. He has good touch so I see no reason why he won't be able to eventually be a solid finisher. WCS has the athletic ability to guard multiple positions and defend the pick and roll VERY well, which in today's NBA is very valuable. Few big men come out of college ready to contribute in the NBA so your "project" arguement is a little short sighted.
Jabari Brown: amazing, quick, clever moves , always in control, great fundamentals, athletic, and has a great shot. What's not to like? I think he jumps up the boards at the combine.
Alex Poythress: possible lottery talent in a bad situation. He should definitely stay another year and pray for playing time or transfer. I wouldn't draft him very high right now, but we are talking about under rated.
have you seen Alex Poythress play? the guy has no skills. all he can do on offense is dunk, he cant dribble,shot,and doesnt have any post moves.
@hbomb WCS is an exteremly athletic 7 footer who blocks, rebounds, and runs the floor like a guard is considered 2nd round material, but also has a questionable motor, sounds exactly like another 2nd rd pick, Deandre Jordan.
I actually said at the start of year that WCS would be first center to go, boy was I wrong but I understand the hesitation, but like Deandre I think he can prove to be a steal.
I was actually going to compare him to Deandre too. He doesn't have the strength of Deandre but he certainly won't be the horrendous free throw Jordan is.
Adrien Payne reminds me of Channing Fry
But speaking of underrated why is Stauskas in the second round right now in this website?
I think Cameron Baristow from New Mexico is pretty underrated. He's not an athletic freak but he's a smart, strong player who gets to the line a lot.
reminds me of a smoother Iman Shumpert wit PG instincts. Future starter. All defensive team type player
1.Kyle Anderson He could be another Lamar Odom a point forward that can do it all.
2.Jahil Carson Has the speed to breakdown a defense and he is a scoring Point Guard that can dish the ball.
3.Montrezl Harrell A beast he has a great NBA body,he is buff and very strong,he has major potential.
4.Le'Bryan Nash He is a excellent defender and he is a tough guy that just won't back down.Great role player.
5.Lamar Patterson Tough senior he plays hard and he can score the ball.
