    Giltrap does. He looks and plays like a potential NBA player.

    Gilstrap BECAUSE of the WAY he ATTACKS the BOARDS and his NATURAL athleticism. If he can SHOW that he IS a consistent SHOOTER I would say he has a GOOD chance of being DRAFTED

    I'll just say I'm very interested to watch Colvin develop for FOUR YEARS!

    Dendy has shown me a lot of promise, but has a ways to go before thinking about the NBA...

    Other than that, Colvin has the potential and so does Gilstrap.

    Craig is a lock and Gilstrap has a great chance. A few other guys may have potential but likely are not on anyone's radar yet.

    Re: OTHER than Craig Brackins.......

    I think with another year of improvement, Garrett is a borderline NBA player. Along the lines of what Blaylock or Taylor have seen, a bottom of the bench/D-league point guard. I don't think he can score enough to be anything more than that.

    Re: OTHER than Craig Brackins.......

    i would def say gilstrap and colvin has the potential

    i will also throw in some dark horses
    DG if he continues to improve i could see him make it and Scott Christopherson if he continues to develop


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: OTHER than Craig Brackins.......

    Obviously Brackins.

    Gilstrap will have to be the man this year to get into the NBA. I think the possibility of him only having one year of D-I ball under him will hurt him. If he is able to come back another year I could easily see him going to the NBA.

    Dendy has some potential after next year, if he can keep his injury's down.

    Hopefully Colvin will progress to be a great player.

    Ham.

    Why - because he has size. If Jared Riener can get run in the NBA, so can Justin.

    Jared Reiner was much more athletic than Ham appears to be

    Re: OTHER than Craig Brackins.......

    Dendy, Gilstrap, maybe Colvin. They're the only players with the athleticism to make it on an NBA roster.

    If the NBA does in fact draft on potential, then those three have the biggest upside.

    The rest of the team (remember this is other than CB) will be/are good college players, but will never make a career in the NBA. And there is no shame in that at all. I love this team.

    I think if Hamilton continues to develop and add bulk this year like he did from last year he has a shot. NBA loves size, it is the only think you cannot teach.
