Keeping it short and sweet. I judged these picks by a combination of BPA and Positional need. I looked at position, age, and compared seasonal stats. Yes, a lot of it did come down to their statistics for me. I didn't watch very much college basketball, so I didn't have that to go by. I looked at some of the highlight videos, but really those can make anyone look great. Think of Donte Green - highlights of him dunking, hitting three-point shots, doing alley-oops, and blocking Kobe make him look like a superstar. Or, take clips of Brockman diving for balls and showing off his not-to-be-seen-in-actual-game dunks. Then, there is all the hype that surrounds a player, both positive and negative, which can be confounding. The interviews are revealing, but when it comes right down to it, the stats are earned by each player over the season and provide information about actual performance in games relative to other college players.

#2 John Wall: Come on, everybody dance to the music.

"John is a program builder not a taker. He has great pride in his ability and wants to make a statement this season. He's a player coaches dream about because he's a natural leader with the skill to make others better. His length should allow him to be a force on the defensive end from day one."
- John Calipari
