NBA Draft Steals Who Are Shining Bright in the 2014 Playoffs
USA TODAY Sports

These are the players who got left behind in drafts and have emerged as major impact players in the postseason—specifically, guys who are playing at a higher level than we're used to seeing. 

Some of these guys have been around; others are new to the scene. We've left out players like Monta Ellis, Lance Stephenson and Marc Gasol, who are putting up similar numbers as the ones we've seen them put up in the past.
