Player Year School Comment
Erick Barkley Soph. St. John's Lightning-quick off the dribble and on defense. Played well through many off-court distractions.
Ernest Brown Soph. Indian Hills (Iowa) CC Raw 7-footer needs to work on game outside of three feet. Had signed with Iowa State.
Schea Cotton Soph. Alabama Needs to prove he can score at the NBA level. Only played one year of major-college ball.
Jamal Crawford Fr. Michigan Has size and quickness to be an NBA point but outside shot suspect.
Joshua Cross Jr. Southern Illinois Did not start for SIU last season. 6-4 guard averaged 6.6 pts., 4.8 reb.
Kaniel Dickens Jr. Idaho Averaged 12.1 points, 6.6 rebounds; at 6-8, a very undersized center.
Soph. Missouri The 6-3 point led the Tigers at 15.3 points and 3.7 assists per game.
Jr. UConn Point guard has knack for big baskets and big steals. Needs to improve shooting (career 41.6% FG).
Steve Eldridge Jr. Henderson State 6-10 center averaged 7.6 points, 5.2 rebounds in first season at NCAA Division II school.
Marcus Fizer Jr. Iowa State Dominating scoring threat. A bull inside, with deft outside shot. A top-five pick.
Donnell Harvey Fr. Florida Makes up for offensive limitations with tenacious rebounding.
Cory Hightower Soph. Indian Hills (Iowa) CC Slasher averaged 22.8 points; at 6-8, an attractive package. Had signed with TCU.
Rashaad Hines Jr. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Saw action in eight games, averaging 12.1 points. Shot 40 percent on 3s.
Jimmie Hunter Soph. Life At 6-4, he led Life University to an NAIA championship last season.
DerMarr Johnson Fr. Cincinnati Lanky 6-9 shooter showed nice range but didn't do many little things. Defense is a concern.
Jason Kapono Fr. UCLA Polished offensive player; led Bruins in scoring as a freshman.
Mark Karcher Jr. Temple Inside-outside threat the epitome of 'tweener. Shot selection could use work.
Andre Mahorn Jr. Utah State Saw little action (8.1 mpg) in first D-I year after two impressive JUCO seasons.
Paul McPherson Jr. DePaul Athletic guard who topped 20 points in just three games this season, his first of major-college ball. Averaged 11.2 points.
Brian Merriweather Jr. Texas-Pan American 6-3 guard averaged 20.4 ppg; shot 41.5 percent on 3-pointers.
Chris Mihm Jr. Texas One of the few true centers in the draft. Good hands and footwork make for solid package.
Darius Miles H.S. East St. Louis, Ill. A small forward who could play some shooting guard. Scouts love his versatility, so much that he'll be a lock for the lottery.
Mike Miller Soph. Florida Versatile with big upside. Led national runner-up Gators in scoring (14.1 ppg).
Jerome Moiso Soph. UCLA At 6-10, has athleticism to play inside and outside. Has strong set of post moves.
Joel Przybilla Soph. Minnesota Shot-blocking machine (3.7 per game) who needs to add muscle and offensive moves.
Michael Redd Jr. Ohio State Led Buckeyes in scoring -- and rebounding -- at 6-foot-6.
Quentin Richardson Soph. DePaul Versatility and rebounding ability as a guard make him a lock in the first round.
JaRon Rush Soph. UCLA Needs to improve outside shot to make it as an NBA shooting guard.
Jeryl Sasser Jr. SMU 6-7 combo guard who rebounds like a forward but shoots too erratically to be a first-round pick.
Kenny Satterfield Fr. Cincinnati In the process of removing name from draft.
Karim Shabazz Jr. Providence 7-2 shotblocker lacks offensive skills; a stretch to go in the first round.
DeShawn Stevenson H.S. Fresno, Calif. Possibly the most athletic guard in the draft. Had signed with Kansas.
Stromile Swift Soph. LSU Athletic big man who can step out and score outside. Good shot-blocker.
Joe White Soph. Texas A&M Made all-Big 12 freshman team; did not play his sophomore season.
Derrick Worrell Jr. Pittsburgh Played 11 mpg in 10 games; averaged 3.7 ppg, 2.2 rpg as a 6-7 JUCO transfer.
