great work clutch! wish Doron Lamb could find his way onto that list (he might have been the best shooter in college basketball last year), but it's a pretty damn good list.

Where would you rank him?

Nice list. Only major complaint I have is I can't believe Quincy Miller isn't shown at all. I think he'd be on the Rockets top 20 list.

So Anthony Davis... I live in Germany so I've never seen him play - but from what I read he doesn't seem like that can't miss project. Yeah, he does a little bit of everything, but his weaknesses (poor strength, struggles with his offense) seem to be killing him at the beginning f his NBA career. It's basically a draft for potential, and that goes wrong pretty often.

Again, I probably don't know anything so don't take my analysis serious - I'm just struggling to understand all the hype. I've read he is the best prospect out of college of the last 5 years... Didn't griffin and Rose come out in this time?

Running down that list easily confirms what we thought. The first 25 is SOLID... and there's more......definitely the deepest draft in a long time.

i'm a big Royce White fan, but i thought this was fair commentary:

Ben Rohrbach: Royce White was expelled from De La Salle High & quit Minnesota after his arrest, but he has a fear of flying, so suddenly he's quirky? about 7 minutes ago

I just read this post in a bad German accent.

Thomas Robinson is my favorite prospect in the draft (not named Anthony Davis), and I hate Kansas.

If the Rockets ended up getting him (and keeping him), I'd be ecstatic.

Henson is a force defensively. Blocks shots, rebounds at a high rate, smart player. Good athleticism to go long with his crazy reach. He can be a young Marcus Camby; a top defensive center with some added bulk.

Robinson's numbers are nearly identical to Jordan Hill coming out of college. I'll pass on him.

What's your point?

Jimmer Fredette scored 9 more ppg in his final year of college than Michael Jordan did.

See why you should use more than just numbers, now?
