Draft Day!

College Prospect Ratings (CPR) are a formula meant to approximate a college player’s pro potential. It’s based on college box score production, and so, it is limited in its ability to assess certain elements of a player’s game (and certainly, his character). Still, it’s been successful in its predictions. CPR suggested Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard should have been top 5 picks in 2011. And, it found 2nd round steals, Draymond Green and Jae Crowder, in 2012. (For more details, see this previous post.)

Here’s what CPR says about this year’s class:
