Who Will Be This Year's DeJuan Blair?
Who do you guys think will be the guy that's projected to go in the lottery and will eventually drop into the late first round early second round?
Gordon Hayward won't fall to the 2nd but he'll fall to the 20s.
And Elliot Williams wasn't really considered a lottery pick.
Soloman Alabi...i've hear number 13 to Toronto (never believed it for a minute) but the guy will fall to the 2nd round
Orton was, at one time, projected as the 10th..
Hassan Whiteside was projected top 5 at one point...
Now I don't see a guy dropping like Blair did, but a guy who I feel should be picked in round 1, but if he goes in round 2 that will surprise everyone is.....Dominique Jones.
As far as being a similar player i think Derrick Character will be the Dejuan Blaire. but a player who will slip i think Daniel Orton has a chance to really slip
ima say eric bledsoe
One candidate would be Orton because of the same knee concerns that teams had with Blair combined with the fact that he was not exactly a stud at Kentucky.
The other would be Whiteside. He has experience issues, maturity questions, and refused to go to work out for all the teams that were inviting him (he turned down Boston). I have him pegged for Atlanta because the Hawks typically go for the upside guys, but there are rumors that they want to move their pick.
i think willie warren
