Post Most Overrated College Player

Who do you think is the most overrated player in college hoops that is expected to be drafted next year?

My vote would go to Joakim Noah. I don't really think he will amount to anything in the NBA. His outside shot is no good, and the only thing he has going for him is his height, not to mention he looks like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Between him and Aaron Gray from Pitt

darkhorse is Greg Oden because people rate him ridiculously high and he has proven nothing to garner that rating. Seems like every1 automatically gave him the benefit of the doubt when as of now he isnt the best player in college bball

Definately Aaron Gray. Our marshmellow center dropped around 27 and 10 on him.

It has to eb either Noah or Oden. Oden will be good but people act like he's going to average 30 and 20 as a rookie. Noah will be solid but I don't think he's production will be worth the top 4 pick he'll likely be.

Noah will be good and a fine center/power forward in this league. I agree with Spike about Aaron Gray, and possibly Nick Fazekus.

my vote goes to gray b/c noah is really good and strong + national championship experience that not many other of those good players can say they had... NOAH will be pretty good in the NBA. Gray will be a bust in the draft.

Gray going around 15??? You for real? : Where did you read this? Someone is setting themselves up for a huge let down drafting that kid.

Not a bad pick. And I can't believe a school like Duke is starting a backup like Greg Paulus. He should've played football.
