If we're talking about guys who raised their stock dramatically through the tourney 2 guys immediately come to mind...Robert "Tractor" Traylor and Juwan Howard.

I for one think that it's quite easy to recognize a player with upside and a player with great college stats but not much upside...

Clarify the topic...because there are guys who have HELPED THEMSELVES/THIER STOCK by having great a great tourney. Dwayne Wade is one. As far as a player striking gold and went from an undrafted projected player to a drafted one? Cant think of one offhand.

Bryce Drew from Valpo would have been drafted regardless. Dont think that highlight made him a draft pick. If you watch college bball he made noise. He may have helped himself as far as his stock is concerned but he was a first round prospect before the tourney.

Ya, he's the one. Maybe he was good in college, I dunno, I didn't really follow VP, but I'm sure his tourney performance at least helped his draft status.
