2014 Top NBA Draft Prospects

9. Doug McDermott

Doug McDermott is a 6’8″ small forward from Creighton University. McDermott put up some incredible numbers throughout his career at Creighton, but this past season was certainly his best. He averaged 26.7 points per game while shooting 52.6% from the field and 44.9% from behind the arc. He also grabbed 7 rebounds per game. McDermott’s numbers were good enough to make him the obvious choice for the Wooden Award (national player of the year). McDermott’s offensive game should translate well to the NBA, and he should be one of the better scorers from this year’s draft.  Yes, he will be a defensive liability no matter where you put him, but he is more athletic than people give him credit for. McDermott posted an eye-opening max vertical of 36.5″ at this year’s combine, which was a lot better than most people expected. McDermott’s great knack for scoring and underrated athleticism is good enough for me to rank him as the number 9 prospect in this year’s draft class.
