The 5 Most Overrated Players Heading into the 2014 NBA Draft

The 2014 NBA Draft is full of top-tier talent. It also has its share of overrated players.

What do I mean by overrated, exactly? We're talking about college kids, so let's keep it scholarly.

According to the dictionary:

o·ver·rate (ōvərˈrāt): have a higher opinion of (someone or something) than is deserved.


This list is comprised of players who are very highly valued within the basketball world. All five of them are projected to be taken in the first round.

However, all five are also being overhyped. 

Whether it's the result of too much media exposure, the sports world's obsession with highlight-reel plays or the fact that we often forget that the college game and NBA game are extremely different, these are players whose stocks are too high right now.

When draft day arrives, I wouldn't label them as players to avoid, but if I were a general manager, I would definitely make sure I did my due diligence before selecting them.
