Mike Huguenin's answer: I think Florida G Bradley Beal is going to be a star, a guy who averages in the high teens in points, along with six or so rebounds and four or so assists per game. He already has an NBA body, and as he becomes a more adept ballhandler, the sky is the limit. He has good range and also knows how to finish around the basket. Beal is both more athletic and stronger than he looks, and as he continues to grow into that body, he will make for a matchup nightmare.
Steve Megargee's answer: I think Davis is the only sure thing, but I really like the overall game of Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Even if he never develops into an outstanding shooter, his energy and defensive ability should make him a quality pro. And if he does improve as a shooter, he's a potential all-star. I also think Florida guard Bradley Beal definitely has star potential – he actually might have more upside than Kidd-Gilchrist – and Kansas forward Thomas Robinson should be a solid pro for a while.
