Expect The SEC & Big East to produce 51% of this year's draft picks....
SEC- might produce the most draft picks...it might have 8 players chosen in the 1st round..And at least 8 guys going in the 2 round....
1st rounders...John Walls.Patrick Patterson.Demarcus Cousins.Eric Bledsoe.Renaldo Sidney.Terrico White..Jarvis Varnado and Micheal Washington
2nd rounders...Trey Thompkins..Tyler Smith..Tazmin Mitchell.Scotty Hopson.A.J. Ogilvy..Wayne Chism.Kenny Boynton..
Big East...is loaded also.....
1st rounders...Wesley Johnson..Greg Monroe..Kemba Walker..Stanley Robinson...Devin Ebanks...Deshaun Butler..
2nd rounders..Luke Harangody..Arinza Onuaku..Jerome Dyson..Lance Stephenson..Jeremy Hazell...Scottie Reynolds...Samardo Samuels...Kevin Jones
in my eyes renardo sidney and eric bledsoe should return...scotty hopson no doubt needs to return, rotnei clarke wont get drafted, michael washington's a 2nd round talent, trey thompkins should return as should kenny boynton
what about the big east?
devin ebanks, scottie reynolds, kevin jones, da'sean butler, arinze onuaku, lance stephenson, yancy gates, augustus gilchrist, greg monroe, wesley johnson, ashton gibbs, stanley robinson, jerome dyson, kemba walker, gavin edwards, mac koshwal, jeremy hazell, samardo samuels, lazar hayward, luke harangody, mike rosario, austin freeman, brad wanamaker, etc....
lol you are so stuck on eric bledsoe being a first round pick when no one else thinks so. maybe another fan of his but i still havent heard any nba scouts talk about him being a first round pick as you said you have read somewhere. matter of fact bradley,j.brown, scottie reynolds, sharon collins, craig brakins, dexterpittman, damon james, cole aldrich, xavier henry, denis clemete, jacob pullen, and the kid out of vanderbuilt are all getting more first round talk then eric. the sec might produce 4 -5 at best for the first round
Quincey, when did people start considering Tyreke Evans and Jonny Flynn top ten picks last year? At this time last year, I think this site still had B.J. Mullens in the top ten. Where sites and blogs have these guys right now does not mean a whole lot.

So true. Wall, Turner, Johnson, the only players you can say are guaranteed Top 10 picks right now, maybe not even Johnson either.
i cant even find one that has eric as a second round pick

johnny flynn and evans were already considered lotto picks. check the papers last year and or mock drafts before this time last year. i can see if eric was lighting it up day in and day out but he had one very good game the other night and ya'll are going crazy. i mean for real can we be a tad more realistic. and eric isnt johnny flynn or evans so im not even sure why you wouldnt think to mention him int he same breath. hes the 4th option on that team. he turns the ball over more then he gets assists. hes only 6'1 if that. i mean lets be real
Dear Mr. Q....... Even the Draft Sites sometimes gets it wrong..One site had B.J Mullens as a top 5 pick...And Flynn's outstanding play in the tournament is whut shot him into the top 10..Becuz b4 then he was mentioned as a late pick...Andy Katz mentioned it yesterday on a segment on ESPN U....He stated that Bledsoe was the 2nd best point guard prospect draft wise..But he also said he hope he returns..Becuz he have a chance to be top 5 next year ..If he continues to work on things..I'm not stuck on Bledsoe..Screw Bledsoe..I'm just a huge fan of b-ball...And every year someone moves up to be a surprise high pick...In 2008 it was Westbrook...Becuz Love & Collison were the main focus...But scouts saw whut Westbrook could do....
no one paid attention to westbrook?...thats not trtue i was hearing about him all year. they were talking about him all year
thats a link of all of katz talk about eric i dont see one where he mentions him as the second best point guard prospect draft wise. am i missing something?
tryna think of a freshman in history not being considered a draft pick by this point in the season and then by the end of the year be a first round draft pick
Bledsoe could possibly sneak into the first round I wouldn't put much into it, but it's not like it's impossible, dude matter of factly reminds me of Johnny Flynn, both are probably 6'0 even both have well built bodies, both are lightning quick and have hops, bledsoe is very athletic and strong if he could have a few more break out performances he could very well get drafted first round, he def is an NBA caliber athlete
2011 yeah. but he hasnt been playing like a first round pik this year. and im talking about all his games not just this last games. as first round point guard should average more assist then turnovers. and yeah he plays off the ball so he should have less turnovers. and right now there are a slew of pg who are better then him

Actually I don't remember that being the case, and it isn't like this site, DX, of Chad Ford archive their rankings from a given day. With reason, because things like these are worth forgetting

Who are your top prospects for the 2009 draft at this time? The list has to start with Blake Griffin I would imagine
Chad Ford (1:55 PM)
It's tough to pick an order this early on but here are the five guys with the best chance of going No. 1: Blake Griffin of Oklahoma, B.J. Mullens of Ohio State, Ricky Rubio of Spain, Demar DeRozan of USC and Brandon Jennings who skipped college and went to play professionally in Italy this year.
In terms of skills and physical attributes, there isn't much Evans doesn't possess, but it's always been about how he applies them all to the game. He has an excellent coach at Memphis, playing in a system tailored to his skills and style of play, so he should have plenty of opportunities to improve over the next few months. However at the rate he's going thus far, one-and-done isn't looking like the best option, especially given his potential if he can improve his decision-making and take his game to the next level.
B.J. Mullens a possible #1 pick, and Tyreke Evans shouldn't be one-and-done. Really? You want to place a really high opinion on what they say about a June draft the winter before?
the thing is....nba scouts werent thinking that..thats just that guy and websites opinion...yet teams said after the draft that evans was on there draft board wayy before the draft. same with flynn...good try though..sorry eric isnt playing anywhere near as well as them and hes not on anyones draft board. since ya'll are so high on him how about this. if he goes first round i will never come on this site again. if he doesnt ya'll never come on again. lets see how much faith ya'll really have now!!!!!
