Lester Hudson is the pick. He was the Nation's leading scorer for a small school in a small conference so nobody knows how he'll do against top competition.
From the Celtics twitter page:
More on Hudson, he's an unorthodox combo guard with an NFL-type body...Hudson's stats: 27.5 PPG, 44.9% FG's, 7.9 RBS
Three games into his UT-Martin career earlier this season, he became the first men's player in Division I history to record a quadruple-double with 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a 116-74 win over Division II Central Baptist College.
But he's also showed greatness against the big boys, erupting for 36 points, nine rebounds and six assists against Vanderbilt, 35 points and 10 rebounds against Memphis and 27 points and 11 rebounds against Mississippi State.
Chad Ford's Analysis:
Draft Projection: Late first to early second
Big-time scorer Very quick Good athlete with good strength Amazing getting the ball to the basket A good shooter with NBA 3-point range Has a good feel for the game and can play the point guard position Excellent rebounder for his size An excellent pickpocket, among the nation's leaders in steals.
Turned 24 years old in August Has had very little exposure against top competition Turns the ball over a lot A bit of a tweener
Summary: His strong performances in 2007-08 against top teams like Memphis, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State had scouts wondering whether he can make the jump. The talent suggests yes. His age and a so-so performance at the Orlando pre-draft camp says no. Given his age, he's a likely second-rounder this season.
