    The above look at the top players at each position focuses on the top seniors and underclassmen. Rather than focusing on every underclassmen who might come out, I would rather mention the top seniors. Several of the top underclassmen could move into the top ten list, if they elected to enter the draft. The players marked with an asterisk (*) have already declared their intentions to enter the draft

    Don't think so Francis3? Granted, you see a 7 footer and you immediately think he'll play inside...but I guarantee you a lot of GMs see a big part of his upside being the fact that he could maybe play some 3...he has a decent shot and can move well, so why not?

    Almost every scouting projection for Chandler has him starting out playing small forward. He's not really an inside player and isn't strong enough to play inside in the NBA. He could end up like Garnett, start out at the 3 then once he increases his strength, move to the 4.

    If the league goes to zone, Chandler will be a SF-He's too good of a shot blocker to keep him sitting on the perimeter. IMO, same goes for Griffin.

    How Gadzuric is below #12 on that list is beyond me. Top 8 for sure.
