Having personally spent the past year closely watching, researching, evaluating and setting up more than 65 detailed scouting reports of the 2011 NBA Draft class, some players are noticeably going to distinguish themselves from the crowd more than others.
In this case, it’s the players I really like for one reason or another in terms of what they bring to the table for an NBA team.
Not all of these guys are going to be stars,—in some cases, maybe even busts—but it's what I gather to be my ideal selections outside of the obvious candidates (Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams, Brandon Knight, etc.) if I were running a team.
This is the first of a three-part series in which we will break down the players we like, are torn about or not too high on.
Note: On every player, you can click their name or country to take you to a more detailed profile for an extensive scouting report and highlights on the respective prospect.
