Ranking the Nation's Top 20 Power Forwards for 2013-14 NCAA Basketball Season
Eileen Blass-USA TODAY Sports
Creighton power forward Doug McDermott is a two-time All-American.

The challenge in making these rankings is balancing potential with past accomplishments. Both deserve to be taken into consideration. 

No position is more difficult to judge at the top this season than power forward. You have one player, Kentucky's Julius Randle, who is one of best power forward prospects in the last 20 years. He has the physical tools to dominate right away. Then there's Creighton's Doug McDermott, who deserves to have "legend" associated with his name one day with the career he's already put together. 

The challenges don't stop there, either. This is the deepest position group in the country, and some tough omissions had to be made to cut the list down to 20. 

As a reminder, these rankings are based on predicted value this season. In case you missed it, here are the top 20 centers, and the rest of the rankings will be published on the following days:

Nov. 1: Small Forwards

Nov. 4: Shooting Guards

Nov. 6: Point Guards

Nov. 8: Top 100
