The 2012 NBA draft is drawing closer, and we're continuing to look at the top players in this year's class. Last week, I highlighted five prospects who could turn into NBA stars -- led by Anthony Davis -- and six other talented players who have a chance to be very good but also face a few more questions.
Today, I unveil my ranking of the best 30 players available in the draft. It's no surprise that Davis leads this story, too, but we can also see the amount of depth in the 2012 class.
1. Anthony Davis, Kentucky Wildcats
Davis is the best prospect in this draft and a "once in a decade" talent. His length, athleticism and stunning defensive range alone make him the top selection. Add in his tremendous hands, offensive potential and his selfless attitude, and you have a winner.
