Perry Jones is a better nba prospect than Sullinger
 
Jones will get drafted ahead of and be a better nba player than sullinger. As always ohio st players get over rated but someone who should never get over rated going into the nba is big guys who don't dunk the ball around the basket. Sullingers size/strength/ and skill make him a better ncaa player, but when it comes to the nba sullinger should not be thought of as a top 5ish pick

Jones might have a higher talent ceiling but Sullinger is more of a sure thing. If anything, Sullinger will at least be a decent scorer and rebounding but I don't see him as a star. Perry Jones though? Andray Blatche. No thank you.

I agree . He disappears in big games.

I personally would take Jones ahead of him because if I'm picking that high I want the potential. He could be a real difference maker, but the reality is that the league is filled with tall athletes with guard skill sets that have flamed out, and I completely agree that Sullinger is more of a sure thing. If I were picking 8-12 in this draft, I'd love to have Sullinger land at me, because I feel like I know exactly what I'm getting. He's going to be able to score with his back to the basket, at least in a reserve role, and he's going to pass well out of the post, and he's gonna rebound. Sure I'd love him to be a better defender at the rim, but you're not getting a 5 star prospect out of everyone.
At worst Sullinger puts together a Chris Gatling kind of career where he comes off of someone's bench and draws double teams for a second team.
Jones may give you a genuine mismatch nightmare guy, but Andrey Blatch is not an impossibility either.
