NBA Draft 2011: 10 NCAA Players Who Could Win Rookie of the Year

Depending on which teams draft them, former NCAA players like Nolan Smith could make a Michael Phelps-sized splash in the NBA's talent pool.  Trust me—things could go swimmingly for some of the rookies coming into the NBA from this crop of college players. 

This year's talent pool is well above average in my estimation and professional teams should be licking their proverbial chops.  Join me and chop it up through this slideshow for an entertaining dose of much-coveted fun.

I present you with 10 players who have the talent to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award. 

Roll graphics, but, before you do—please, no comments about Nolan Smith being in the Illuminati.  He's calling a play in this photograph—not showing allegiance to evil. 

Now, roll graphics, please.
