8. Stanley Robinson 6-8 220 SF UConn Sr. - Freakish length. Game appears to have dropped off along with his braids.

4. Greg Monroe 6-10 247 PF Georgetown So. - Unique player. Feel for the game extremely high for a post.

8. Gani Lawal 6-9 234 PF Georgia Tech Jr. - Body strength and feel in the post concerns. Skills showed improvement
9. Kevin Seraphin 6-9 255 PF/C Cholet 1989 - Raw but freakish combination of explosiveness, strength & length.

Centers
1. DeMarcus Cousins 6-11 280 PF/C Kentucky Fr. - Has mean streak + emotional/maturity issues. How deep does rabbit hole go?
2. Hassan Whiteside 7-0 235 C Marshall Fr. - Upside extremely intriguing. Major question marks about desire and maturity.
3. Cole Aldrich 6-11 245 C Kansas Jr. - Mechanical/awkward yet effective shooting mechanics. Mature, shot blocker.
4. Larry Sanders 6-10 235 PF/C VCU Jr. - Project with a lot of intrigue. 7-7 wingspan allows him to play PF or C.
5. Solomon Alabi 7-1 241 C Florida St. So. - Shows potential at both ends. Reflexes and foot speed still a question.
6. Miroslav Raduljica 6-11 240 C FMP Zeleznik 1988 - Skilled offensively. Strong season has him on the rise.
7. Jerome Jordan 7-0 245 C Tulsa Sr. - His length and touch quickens the pulse. Energy level brings it back down.
8. Art Parakhouski 6-11 260 C Radford Sr. - Mid-major standout with touch, has gained interest from scouts.
9. AJ Ogilvy 6-10 250 C Vanderbilt Jr. - Bounced back somewhat late in the year but still an under-whelming season.
10. Hamady Ndiaye 7-0 240 C Rutgers Sr. - Impressed at PIT. Solid athlete with shot blocking ability.

Xavier Henry IMO will be a star, love his game.

Great breakdown!!! ^btw I like Aldrich but Cousins is supremely talented. Aldrich post game is horrible at this point. Aldrich will be a good player, most defensively, and he's a safer bet but Cousins has all star ability. It really depends on what a team needs.

Was this just supposed to be for college players? http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Donatas-Motiejunas-1300/

Donatas Motiejunas is a Lithuanian center that will go no lower than 15th overall, and as high as 9th. Super silky European 7 footer who has the potential to be a slightly lesser version of Dirk/Pau.
