no.1: PG John Wall (Kentucky), Washington Wizards

Grade: A

Wall is an elite NBA point guard. The Wizards nailed this pick. 

no.2: SG Evan Turner (Ohio State), Philadelphia 76ers

Grade: C

Turner has become a solid starter in the league. The 76ers were expecting more when he was drafted. 

no.3: PF Derrick Favors (Georgia Tech), Utah Jazz 

Grade: C+

Favors has improved every year since being drafted. He’s still not at the level which he was expected to be at. 

no.4: SF Wesley Johnson (Syracuse), Minnesota Timberwolves

Grade: D-

Johnson has turned into a D-league starter/ NBA 12th man. Not what you want with the number four overall pick. 

no.5: C DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky), Sacramento Kings

Grade: A+

“Boogie” Cousins has developed into the best center in the NBA. 

no.6: C Ekpe Udoh (Baylor), Golden State Warriors

Grade: F

Udoh never accomplished much in the NBA. Golden State is lucky they nailed their other lottery picks (Curry-2009, Thompson-2011). 

no.7: PF Greg Monroe (Georgetown), Detroit Pistons

Grade: B

Monroe has turned into a pretty good NBA big man. 

no.8: SF Al-Farouq Aminu (Wake Forest), Los Angeles Clippers

Grade: C-

Aminu finally figured out his game in 2015. He’s a solid second rotation NBA player. 

no.9: SF Gordon Hayward (Butler), Utah Jazz

Grade: A

Hayward came from a small school, but has developed into the Jazz team leader and star. 

no.10: SF Paul George (Fresno St), Indiana Pacers

Grade: A+

PG is a top 8 or 9 NBA player. It’s surprising he fell to ten in the draft.
