After a breakout sophomore year at Washington, Terrence Ross is rising up draft boards perhaps faster than any other prospect in the 2012 NBA Draft.
At 6'7", Ross is perhaps the most well-rounded player on this list outside of Bradley Beal, and he could be a big contributor right away in 2012.
The biggest strength to Ross' game is his jump shot because he has a high, quick release that he can get over taller defenders.
He shot 37.1 percent from three-point range during the regular season at Washington, and he profiles to be an exceptional long-range shooter in the NBA.
With a fearless attitude on the court, Ross also should be a very good defender on the wing in the NBA, another skill that could help ease the transition during his rookie season.
While he relied heavily on his athleticism in college to get to the basket, Ross will need to improve on his ball-handling at the next level if he wants to become more than just a shooter.
He will also need to add on strength to be able to survive in the paint, though he should have no problem doing that with an ideal frame to fill out.
Terrence Ross' name is flying up draft boards as the draft comes closer, and although he is ranked as the No. 5 guy on this list, don't be surprised if he is drafted higher than the other guys in the first round.
Projected Pick: No. 15 to the Philadelphia 76ers
