Gary Forbes should have gotten picked. Pat Calathes should also get some looks at teams in summer camp

Default Re: Undrafted Guys Who Can Make An NBA Roster

I put together my own mock draft for the 2008 draft at the beginning of the 2007-2008 college season.

I got 23 of the 60 correct (not in the correct order mind you), but I also did not have access to info about European players and other internationals. This was based on NCAA players only.

Here are some un-drafted guys I thought would be selected.

-- Aleks Maric (Nebraska) >> seamed like a Andrei Kirilenko type
-- Chris Lofton (Tennessee) >> chosen before the cancer announcement
-- Marcellus Kemp (Nevada) >> thought for sure he'd go first round
-- Pat Calathes (St.Joe's) >> 6'10 players with 3pt accuracy a popular breed
-- Kentrell Gransberry (S.Florida) >> under-sized but a beast
-- Chris Daniels (Texas A&M CC) >> another small school pick (J-Thompson)
-- Ronald Steele (Alabama) >> injuries have ruined this kid
-- Brian Butch (Wisconsin) >> defensive grinder, rebounds and gets bloody
-- Charles Rhodes (Miss St) >> between forward
-- Randal Falker (S.Illinois) >> perhaps not defensive-minded enough
-- JaJuan Smith (Tennessee) >> Lofton partner in crime, great shooter
-- Justin Hawkins (New Mex St) >> 6'7 Guard, pro body
-- Joseph Jones (Texas A&M) >> see Charles Rhodes
-- Martin Zeno (Texas Tech) >> see Randal Falker
-- Dan Coleman (Minnesota) >> perhaps not athletic enough for the NBA
-- Lorenzo Mata (UCLA) >> I thought UCLA may have provided 5 pros this yr
-- Drew Neitzel (Mich St) >> Kyle Macy, Steve Alford, Gerry McNamara ???
-- Gavin Grant (NC State) >> see Justin Hawkins
-- Derrick Low (Wash St) >> see Dan Coleman
-- Bo McCalebb (New Orleans) >> reminds me of Alfrederick Hughes/Rodney Monroe
-- Longar Longar (Oklahoma) >> no offensive skill set?
-- DeMarcus Nelson (Duke) >> when was the last time no Dukie was drafted?
-- Roy Bright (Delaware St) >> saw him play a game last year. Impressive.
-- Shaun Pruitt (Illinois) >> reminds me of the Collins twins
-- Bryant Dunston (Fordham) >> see Charles Rhodes/Joseph Jones
-- Jiri Hubalek (Iowa St) >> see Pat Calathes
-- Marcel Jones (Oregon St) >> see Justin Hawkins/Gavin Grant
-- Aaron Bruce (Baylor) >> see Drew Neitzel
-- Marcus Stout (Fordham) >> under-sized for the off-guard in the NBA
-- Sundiata Gaines (Georgia) >> I saw him as good as Mario Chalmers
-- Dwayne Curtis (Mississippi) >> how many under-sized PFs were out there?
-- Brian Laing (Seton Hall) >> like Marcellus Kemp, 1st Rdr I thought
-- Will Daniels (Rhode I) >> not enough outside game for SF, too small for PF
-- Geary Claxton (Penn State) >> see Hawkins/Grant/Marcel Jones

Thoughts on any of these guys?

BTW, hello, this is my first post to the forum.

Welcome!

I think Lofton, Neitzel, Kemp, and Nelson all can possibly make an NBA roster.

Delaware State is historically black I believe? Just wondering, when was the last time a player was drafted from a historically black college?

Outstanding question. I've failed to find a list of Division I and II colleges that are "historically black".
