The excitement of March Madness is unparalleled, and to think that some of the participating athletes are merely teenagers is incredible.

Some players could see meteoric rises in their potential draft position, while others might have terrible performances that lead to a rapid decline in their stock.
These five guys have the ability to significantly help or hurt their draft stock once the fun of March Madness begins.
