Haven't been watching much college ball lately. But if drafting today, who would be top 10? NBA team drafting order not necessary. Just based on ability.

Whose stock is up or down so far?

Karl Towns, Okafor, for top BIG???

Best perimeter player?

best surprise player?

most disappointing player?

anyone care to take a crack at this???

top 10 please

I'd hoped you would reply. I agreed with your last year draft assessments. You will be my eyes for now, so don't F this up.

I haven't watched much college basketball this year yet with college football still going on so I can't properly evaluate or update my preseason top 25.

Willie Cauley-Stein really impressed me against Texas tonight. Sharing the stage with 7 other big men that will be professionals he shined the brightest. He isn't overly impressive in one area but he does all of the little things and is a stat sheet stuffer. Plus he can protect the rim and does an excellent job of running the floor.

He'd be amazing with a team like Phoenix especially with their style of play.

WCS sounds comparable to Joakim Noah. In terms of defense and doing a bunch of things good instead of being incredible at one thing or all of them.

Oakley I think you have Turner lower than I would. I agree with most of your draft even tho my viewing has been limited and I know nothing of the international top prospects. I think the top two is concrete. Mudiay is showing maturity and great athleticism and skill from what I have read about his time overseas. Okeafor looks like a walking double double, he was very efficient and impactful in the last game I saw vs Wisconsin . Will be exciting to revisit this list come draft time.

Against California, UConn, and Kentucky, the only three teams that Texas has played with a pulse Turner has struggled offensively. In those three games he averaged 6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks but he only shot 23% FG and 0% 3FG.

I think Caulie-Stein should drop in the Draft. I don't think he has the toughness to be an NBA center. Honestly even Miles Plumlee and Alex Len are better than Caulie-Stein. I don't think WCS is worth a top-10 pick.

Montrezl Harrell, D'Angelo Russell, Kaminsky should be more productive than WCS imo. I'm not a fan of his style of play and ability. He's weak. Even possibly Dez Wells and Caris LaVert might be more productive.

I think those two Centers in the game w/ Arizona and Gonzaga are NBA worthy. The big guy from Gonzaga looked pretty darn good and looked like he could out work WCS. I'll take Kyle Wiltjer too > WCS.

From what I've seen of Stanley Johnson so far I think it's fair to say his athleticism is overrated. I know he was never an above-the-rim guy but he seems to have slow feet. I don't think it's close between him and Winslow right now.

No mention of Dakari Johnson so far?

He kinda has that Derrick Williams athleticism, where if he has time for it to build it's really good but doesn't have short area quickness/explosiveness.

Haven't been too impressed with his defense either, it's early on so hopefully it gets better.

Stanley needs to lose some of that weight. 243 is too much IMO and it's seriously affecting his quickness and ability to attack the rim.

Agree with Stanley Johnson's comments.

Dakari is not explosive enough and I don't see much higher of a ceiling IMO
