However, I don't think there are many guys in this draft that would really be big difference makers in their careers, so even late in the lottery I do think he could be a good pickup.

I'd say he falls somewhere between Bobby Jackson and TJ Ford.

I agree, but the fact that he's clearly the best pure pg (Rose isn't) of the draft, he may get picked higher than he should. I think he's more 20-25 material than lottery. The emerge of Paul and D.Williams may also lift his stock, but then again the fact that Conley didn't contribute immediately could have a negative effect (I know it's stupid, but trends like this do affect the draft).

I don't think the quality of pg's in this draft is very good. Lawson has some potential, but picking him is a risk (is he definitely in?)
