Patty Mills, Backup Point Guard
Most teams, when using their late second-round selection, tend to just throw in the towel and draft a player they don't expect to make the roster but feel like giving him a shot, at the very least.
But history has shown us there are some hidden gems in the second round of the draft, such as Stephen Jackson, Michael Redd, Gilbert Arenas, Manu Ginobili, and so on.
If the Blazers can find that possible gem, they'd come back looking like geniuses.
Although the No. 51 pick is towards the end of the draft, there are still quite a few hungry players who want to earn their spot on an NBA team. The problem is just finding that one guy.
I believe there a couple of possible candidates, although some of them might mean the Blazers need to move up in the second round. This list of players includes the likes of Keith Benson, Demetri McCamey, Jimmy Butler, Rick Jackson and LaceDarius Dunn.
The Blazers did find a very small gem in 2009 when they drafted point guard Patrick "Patty" Mills with the No. 55 selection.
Mills has shown promise as he played behind Andre Miller. Last season, in approximately 12.2 minutes per game, Mills scored 5.5 points and dished out 1.7 assists per game. They may not be the best numbers in the world, but he can only get better, as he is an established shooter.
