    I'd draft my top 5 in this order:

    1) Drummond
    2) Davis
    3) Sullinger
    4) Lamb
    5) Barnes
    There's a few players that I think may sneak into that top 5... Quincy Miller, Michael Gilchrist, and Bradley Beal.

    Davis is up against a couple of future first rounders in Zeller and Henson this Saturday in Lexington, so we'll see if he goes to work in that one also.

    Perry Jones is the wildcard for the elite talent in next year's Draft. He's off the suspension now and dropped 27 in his first game back.

    Davis as of right now is a better pro prospect than Drummond

    I'll say this much, I've seen Blake Griffin in college and Davis is way more impressive

    Davis is a beast on the defensive end. He'll force you to alter your shot every single time your near him.

    Very rarely do you see such a great defensive player like Davis nowadays.

    I think Davis is the next superstar of the NBA.

    Davis.

    Drummond is thicker but when davis puts on some weight he'll be the better player. His natural instincts defensively are better and offensively he was only like 6'2 in his junior year of highschool and was a guard and has the skills of one.

    This is the first time I've seen anyone make this prediction.

    Care to explain?

    Just not impressed. It probably has a lot to do with UNC's lack of top talent through the last decade or so of drafts.

    I don't see anything outstanding in his game. He's a jack of all trades, but a master of none, and he's not a supreme athlete to boot.

    I feel the same way. I'm not high on him at all. I see his peak being a borderline all-star. I don't think he has superstar potential.

    Moser isn't leaving unless he is a virtual lock to be a lotto pick.

    I have seen Davis play about 3 games and he looks amazing. You can't drive on him and he is so long and athletic (can't wait to see the jokes about this). I haven't seen Drummond but I saw some of his games had bad statlines.

The only problem with Drummond has been he doesn't play with an attitude/aggression and and demand the ball like a star player should, but that was the same issue with Dwight for his first 5 years. As he becomes a man(hes only 18 right now), he will develop that aggresiveness and assert himself as a star.

    I like Davis but he reminds me of Tyrus Thomas. People get so caught up on athleticism, length, mobility when it comes to a player his size(6'10) and he is a beast on defense and gets easy dunks around the basket. Yeah he has a lot of upside, but at the PF position in the NBA you gotta be capable of being more than just a defensive force.
    No offense but could you find like worse comparisons. I think you're dead on about Drummond being the better pick, but if you ask me Drummond already has much better skill set than Howard or Amare, he reminds me alot more of a Chris Webber skill set, passes, handles the ball, and has a mid range jumper.

    Anthony Davis reminds me of a less skilled but more agressive Anthony Randolph.

    IMO, Thomas Robinson will be flying up most draft boards by season's end, if he hasn't already. Tough kid, rebounds, defends, and probably has the quickest first step (for a big) in the nation.

    When he puts on more weight?!?! Look at his frame!!! Ask Kevin Durant, John Henson, Brendan Wright how easy it is to just put weight on those frames!! He will be a wing player, now the question is whether or not he can guard NBA caliber wings which I think he will, but getting his shot off on the next level will be the question.
