Six players were in attendance for a pre-draft workout held by the Raptors on Monday: Oregon's Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey, Arizona guard Kobi Simmons, Gonzaga forward Johnathan Williams, SMU forward Semi Ojeleye and Wichita State's Markis McDuffie. Toronto owns just one pick (23rd overall) in this year's draft.
Is SMU's Semi Ojeleye in serious risk of not getting picked in the first round if he stays in the draft?
Scouts and GMs say to keep an eye on SMU's Semi Ojeleye, who's built like a tank but has a really versatile game.
Semi Ojeleye thrived at SMU last season, averaging 19 points per game. Since he'll turn 23 in December, it might be a good idea for him to turn pro now.
The Mustangs are still waiting for that elusive NCAA tourney win, but they look to be the class of the American once again if Semi Ojeleye returns.
Ojeleye was strong in his first season since transferring from Duke, but most scouts still don't see him as a top-tier pick.
