All of the picks have been made. Some were stellar and could wind up being gems for teams down the road, and others were head-scratchers that could cost general managers their jobs.

Such is the way of the draft.

As we get set to grade each selection, understand the definitive evaluation on most prospects takes about five years. That's when the player will have carved himself an identity in the NBA.

With that said, here we go.

Note: Players who were traded have been placed with new teams on table.

Biggest Steal - Cleanthony Early to New York Knicks at No. 34

ST LOUIS, MO - MARCH 21:  Cleanthony Early #11 of the Wichita State Shockers takes a shot against the Cal Poly Mustangs during the second round of the 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at the Scottrade Center on March 21, 2014 in St Louis, Missouri.

To put it plainly, had Early gone to an ACC, Big Ten or SEC school, he would have been a lottery pick. ESPN's Ryan Ruocco agrees that the Knicks got a steal:

The Middletown, New York native should already be fired up to prove doubters wrong. But now playing for his hometown squad will only add fuel to the fire.

Early is 23 years old, which could be a deterrent, but so is Michigan State's Adreian Payne, and he went just outside the lottery at No. 15 to the Atlanta Hawks.

In fact, Early is three months younger than Payne.

Hailing from Wichita State, Early didn't get the attention he deserved. Playing for a well-balanced team, Early averaged 16.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season. He shot 37 percent from three-point range and improved almost every statistic from the previous season.

He has the strength and elite athleticism teams covet from wing players. More than anything, he's a competitor. The Knicks got the steal of the draft in Early who could easily blossom into a starter in the NBA.

Biggest Miss - Bruno Caboclo to Toronto Raptors at No. 20

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 26:  A video screen shows the selection of Bruno Caboclo of Brazil as the #20 overall pick in the first round by the Toronto Rapters during the 2014 NBA Draft at Barclays Center on June 26, 2014 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City

Forget the fact that almost no one had heard of Caboclo. The brain trust of the Raptors could prove to be geniuses for tabbing the raw Brazilian in a few years.

The problem with this selection is that it was made at No. 20. If Caboclo is the guy the Raps liked, then fine, take him. But why couldn't the team trade down with an organization like the Miami Heat who obviously wanted UConn's Shabazz Napier?

The Heat wound up finding a trade partner in the Charlotte Hornets at No. 24, but Toronto could have added assets for their pick and still got Caboclo at No. 26, where the Heat were picking. Charlotte grabbed the 55th overall selection as part of the deal.

Taking such a little-known and less coveted player at No. 20 was not a smart use of Toronto's resources.
