The 2011 NBA Draft was already labelled as a weak one in comparison to those of recent years, and with this weekend's news of Kentucky Wildcats forward Terrence Jones deciding to stay in school for next season, the draft is now even weaker.

According to CBSSports.com, players who had not previously declared for the draft, and those who had not hired an agent, must have withdrawn their name from draft consideration by yesterday in order to be eligible to return to college next season.

Many quality players decided to stay in the draft, and end their collegiate careers.

Tennessee Volunteers duo Tobias Harris and Scotty Hopson both chose to go pro, joining Texas forward Tristan Thompson, Butler guard Shelvin Mack and Kentucky forward DeAndre Liggins in choosing to enter the NBA Draft.

However, there were some players who decided to stay in school, some of which were possible first round picks.

Terrence Jones of Kentucky, Kevin Jones of West Virginia and Ashton Gibbs of Pittsburgh were among the notable players who decided to stay in school for another season to improve their skills and/or win a National Title.

Now let's analyze the players who decided to go pro, and where they are predicted to go in the draft.
