NBA draft prospects, including potential lottery picks, are showcasing their skills in Chicago on Thursday and Friday at the league's pre-draft camp.

Here are five sleepers to watch:

Jackie Carmichael, PF, 6-9, 241 pounds, Illinois State
Scout's take: "He's one of the most ready players. What you see is what you get. He's a skilled, undersized power forward. But coaches will endear themselves to him."

C.J. McCollum is best remembered for leading Lehigh to a Big Dance upset of Duke in '12. (Y! Sports)

C. J. McCollum, PG/SG, 6-3, 192 pounds, Lehigh
Scout's take: "He's a combo-scorer who is coming off a broken foot and didn't get a chance to play a full senior season. He is a George Hill-type of a player. I definitely like his upside."

Norvel Pelle, PF/C, 6-10, 196 pounds, Los Angeles College Prep Academy
Scout's take: "He is definitely a player that no one has heard of. There are some teams that have never heard of him. But he is a guy who if taken in the right range can help you down the line. He's not ready now, but has a lot of upside."

Glen Rice, Jr., SF, 6-6, 215 pounds, NBDL's Rio Grande
Scout's take: "He's a shooter, slasher and scorer. Dad was more of a stand-up shooter. Junior had disciplinary issues at Georgia Tech. But he had an outstanding finish with the D-League and he could move upward in the draft."

Dennis Schroeder, PG, 6-1, 180 pounds, Germany BBL's New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig
Scout's take: "He's a mix between Rajon Rondo and Patrick Beverly. He's an explosive, quick, pass-first point guard. He had immaturity issues in Germany. Interviews will determine his draft future."
