Kalin Lucas: An injury not only hurts you a lot, but the way people look at you. Lucas could have just as well slipped into the first round if the injury hadn’t occurred, or maybe even gotten lower than that.
Avery Bradley: Before the whole Texas meltdown I would have told you Avery Bradley was going to be a lottery pick. But after witnessing a poor effort throughout the second half of the season, Bradley is looking to go mid-first round or a slip to late first round.
Herb Pope: Maybe you've seen something I didn’t, because Pope’s chances of even being taken is slim to none. Pope will be known for his dirty play in the NIT tournament and should return to school for another year of basketball.
Jeremy Hazell: Hazell showed you he can light it up on the offensive end, but look at the NBA players now. Most players that play little or no defense receive little or no playing time. Hazell needs to return to school work on his defense and stay consistent.
Dominique Jones: inconsistency seems to be most college basketball players’ best friends. Jones has shown he can dominant the college game but his size won’t allow him to do the same in the pros. Another year at school to work on his size and consistency is needed.
Devin Ebanks: He and Butler were the fuel of this West Virginia squad. Ebanks's offensive ability is simply amazing. Ebanks is very athletic, quick, and a great jump shooter. Some people want to see Ebanks return for another season, and so do I. Ebanks just has too much to improve.
Armon Johnson: His true point guard skills are a question. Another year of college basketball will help that.
Tommy Mason-Griffin: Not many teams take a 5’10" point guard seriously in the NBA. Especially ones that aren’t quick on offense and get in the passing lane on defense. Mason-Griffin needs to report back to Oklahoma.
Scotty Hopson: Needs major improvements to his offensive game as well as his small frame.
Talor Battle: Yes, he had a breakout freshman season. But his mechanics need some major work. Talor Battle should stay in school.
