Re: bj mullens top 3? get real
It is really hard to rank freshman now because we don't get the same amount of scouting reports because the guys won't be in the NBA next season. I will admit from what I have seen that I like Thabeet more than Mullens, but other than that I can't really comment on how high or low he will go. I do, however, see a guy with a huge amount of upside if he can fill out and play hard. Just because of size I think he is going to be looked at in the top 10. For some reason Koufus just never got that much attention, and I think that is a big part of the reason he fell so low. I think the same thing is going on with AJ Oligvy who is better than people give him credit for.
I do, however, agree on Patterson and Aminu. Patterson had a great freshman season, and I think could end up being an All-American, but as far as the NBA goes I don't see a guy who is a better prospect than JJ Hickson, DJ White, or Richard Hendrix. Not that those guys aren't and can't be good NBA players, but people don't expect lottery pick production out of them. And again, I can't say much about Aminu, but I really don't see a guy that is going to be great. I would not be at all surprised to see in the teens, but I can't imagine he would be as good as even James Johnson or Chase Budinger.
