I'm appaled to this "the more you stay in college, the better you will be". Yeah right, guarding and scoring on college players as opposed to NBA calibre players.
Different cases for different players.

Not all players need the same development in the college ranks.

Nerlens Noel, like Thabeet(sorry for the negative comparison), needs to spend several years in college to develop a better offensive skill set to go along with his shot blocking/post presence. As a 1 dimensional big man he needs to refine his offensive game for the NBA or else he wont reach his full potential. If Nerlens is a 1 & Done, he'll be coming into the league where he can contribute with blocking shots but doesn't have anything to give on offense nor a body ready for the NBA grind.
