Just more than a week ago, Michigan sent three players to the pros via the 2014 NBA draft: Nik Stauskas (No. 8, Sacramento), Mitch McGary (No. 21, Oklahoma City) and Glenn Robinson III (No. 40, Minnesota). And while they may not have a repeat in 2015, coach John Beilein's Wolverines are set to push more talent to the Association's hardwood in the near future.
This slideshow will rank the NBA potential of everyone expected to be on Beilein's roster in 2014-15. Criteria for ranking will come from a mixture of what scouts, media and other experts are saying about said prospects. Size for position and ability (or projected ability) to grasp the game—also known as basketball IQ—will also be taken into account.
While somewhat important and certainly interesting, players' standings in mock drafts won't carry much weight. For instance, a player could be projected to go in the 2015 draft, but that doesn't mean that he has greater potential than that of an incoming freshman who isn't slated to be selected.
