College basketball's All-American team and the NBA's draft lottery don't always mesh.
There are usually multiple players like Tyler Hansbrough, Alando Tucker or Arron Afflalo in the mix. Great college players who the NBA typically overlooks (DeJuan Blair serving as the ideal example from last year; he'd be a lottery pick now.)
John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Evan Turner and Wesley Johnson will be among the top 10 picks. The only one who's not a lottery pick – or even a first-round lock – is Villanova's Scottie Reynolds.
The senior guard supposedly doesn't impress scouts because he's not an elite athlete (code for doesn't have a ridiculous vertical), struggles with his shot selection and is probably a two-guard trapped in a point guard's body.
Maybe those scouts are right, but I would caution overlooking Reynolds. He markedly improved his scoring and shooting – overall and from beyond the the arc – maintained his assist-to-turnover ratio and is an underrated defender. Plus, he hits big shots.
Villanova's early exit didn't help his cause, but that's about the only thing that didn't go right for Reynolds this season.
Random note from Rob Dauster: The second team is all guards and the third team is all forwards (well, one center with Cole Aldrich).
