When it comes to the 2011 NBA Draft, there are plenty of talented collegiate basketball players just aching for their opportunity to shine at the next level against the increased level of competition. 

All of those players boast a unique set of skills.

Some can shoot lights out from anywhere on the court (here's looking at you, Jimmer). Some can play shutdown defense on anyone (Chris Singleton is the man here). Others may be some of the greatest rebounders in the history of college basketball (Kenneth Faried, anyone?).

But one thing that differentiates the so-so prospects from the cream of the crop is athleticism. The men that play in the NBA are some of the most athletic people in the world and that trait is virtually required if someone is hoping to be successful at the sport's highest level. 

Now don't get me wrong. Every single player that will be drafted by each of the 30 NBA squads is a world-class athlete. But these 10 stand out more than the others.
