When most top-collegiate players are projected to be high selections in the NBA Draft, they often throw their name in the pool as soon as possible. In the last five years, only seven seniors have been picked in the top 20 while 18 freshmen have been selected in the top 10.
While this strategy has been portrayed to be very risky, staying a year longer in college is also a gamble. We've seen this issue with Harrison Barnes and Jared Sullinger. If they entered the 2011 NBA Draft, they probably would have been higher selections as opposed to the more loaded draft this year.
These are the seven players who will not benefit from the decision of choosing to attend college for another season.
