About the ones I know best:

Hibbert if he can get decent minutes will put up solid rookie numbers. Nothing spectacular, but solid inside presence. At his size and ability it'd be hard not to, even with a rookie adjustment. He's top-15 as far as rookies go this year.

Anthony Randolph has the word "bust" written all over him. He is a classic case of a bust player. I doubt he does anything worthwhile this year, next year, or pretty much ever.

Joe Alexander is the real deal. Talented, smart, unbelievable leaping ability and great work ethic. He's in my opinion the fifth best rookie in this draft (but, to be fair, the drop-off from 1-4 to 5-10 is pretty significant). He might take a couple of years but he'll make some solid noise backing up RJ this year.

Green- will play himself out of the NBA.
Rush- will define himself as a very good role player
Green- will show glimpses of scoring ability, but a long ways off from rotation
Hibbert- will be a rotation player, get some blocks and rebounds, lots of fouls
Alexander- will ride bench, he is a ways away from contributing
Randolph- will play maybe 50 games. Nelson doesn't play rookies
Almond- will play in the NBA D league most the year
Tucker- will find a spot to play 8 mpg as a role

I think Morris Almond is the real deal, I don't know if he will get any playing time with Ronnie Brewer playing however. The guy is a flat out scorer, and I think he could be a game changer for a championship team in a few years.

Brandon Rush has just about the smoothest jumpshot of any rookie I've seen this preseason. Not sure he's going to get huge minutes this year, but he figures to be Indiana's SG of the future.

Roy Hibbert is going to be a monster. His jumper is suspect, but he already has a jump hook and defensively the guy is a brick wall. Figures to play major minutes this year. I think he will crack the ROY top 10. Some of the lottery guys just aren't that impressive so far.

I don't know that Gerald Green will make a roster, let alone have any impact.

Anthony Randolph's an athletic freak, but the guy lacks and understanding of fundamental basketball. He doesn't know how to play, only how to use his athleticism. Guys like that, who never learn to really play the game, usually hit their ceiling relatively early, and intelligent players who understand the game tend to abuse them on a nightly basis.

I don't know much about Dante Green or Alando Tucker, sorry.
