In other cases, teams will need to go with the player who perhaps may fall short of stardom but is almost guaranteed of becoming a reliable rotation player for years to come.

Not that this should come as any shock, but Kentucky forward Anthony Davis is on this list. A few of the other names may be a bit more surprising.
