Two more draft updates

Jared Cunningham is officialy in the 2012 NBA Draft and will forego his senior year.

My take: He's undersized for a shooting guard at 6-4, but he's a terrific athlete and defender and looks like a mid-2nd round pick. He might have been a late 1st rounder if he stayed and worked on his shooting and ball-handling skills, so I'm not the biggest fan of his decision.

John Jenkins will also forego his senior year and enter the 2012 NBA Draft.

My take: Jenkins had a very solid season, averaging 20 points and help leading the Commodores to an SEC Championship. He's a very good player, but might be pushed to the early second because of the number of talented shooting guards in this year's class. His decision is understandable, as a number of seniors (Festus Ezeli, Jeffery Taylor, etc...) are leaving.

Thoughts on these prospects and where they will go in the draft?

John Jenkins

I think Jenkins could develop into a great role player, he was the man on that Vanderbilt team, it and it's a wise choice by him to go when his stock is high, not haveing Ezeli and Taylor to cover up some of his weakness' could really hurt his stock next year.

Ya Cunningham shoul have

Ya Cunningham shoul have stayed to work on his skills and OSU would have been pretty good.

100% agree with Jenkins decision though... had nothing left to prove
