Arguably the heart and soul of the 2010 Kansas Jayhawks basketball squad were twins Marcus and Markieff Morris.

While both brothers still own an additional year of eligibility in the NCAA, both have decided to forgo their senior season to enter the 2011 NBA draft.

While Markieff is more of a defensive-minded athlete that could play either the forward or center position in the NBA, Marcus is a hybrid forward that can play both the 3 and 4 position and has the great ability command a game using his big body.

Chad Ford of ESPN has Markieff and Marcus going No. 17 to the New York Knicks and No. 15 to the Indiana Pacers, respectively.
