    A lot of people around here seem like they are giving up on DJ. I think he's going to have a very nice year.

    I was kinda surprised to see Lofton quite that low. This season will decide exactly where he winds up in the NBA.

    Mark "Bo" Pelini was born 6 weeks premature. He designed a blitz to help him escape from his mother's uterus early.

    I dont see OJ being the #1 pick, I just think there are to many guards of his caliber in college and in the NBA. Dont agree with #6 either, didnt he ride the pine all year for UF?

    That would still be about 20 picks out of the draft...and that's not even including the European guys that will be coming over, right?

    If he was smart he'd make a $20 million dollar move and learn a fundamentally sound jump shot.

    It's not like he plays for a team that has thousands of crazed fans that remind him every chance they get....

    O.J Mayo reminds me of Kobe but not as good, and as far as a #1 pick in the nba draft..No i don't see that happening atleast I think the NBA has knowledge not to let that happen. He is very good, but maybe too good if you've ever seen him. Lets just hope that patterson stays 2 years. Patterson 53rd? Are you serious? Top 20 easy.

    Hibbert will go before the ten pick, that is almost a given. A lot of size and he has improved each year.

    Patterson wont leave after year one. He still has a lot to prove before he is ready for the league.

    Whether you think you can or you can't, either way you are probably right.

    He is good, but he is NOT a top 20 pick, he was 17th in his CLASS. Add up the seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, and overseas guy that will declare also, he is no going to be a top 20 pick after his first year, maybe low 2nd round. Stay for 2 or 3 years, and maybe top 20 then.
