Summary:
Devin Harris
Devin Harris.
Notes: Despite good seasons as a freshman and sophomore he was a little off the radar screen. Scouts saw him as more of a combo guard, but he proved this season that he can also run a team. Harris has declared for the draft and hired an agent ending his college eligibility.

Upside: Harris appears to be the complete package. He has the size, speed, quickness, explosiveness and sweet shooting stroke that scouts love. He plays the game at a frantic pace. Right now he's more of a scoring point guard, but scouts claim that he has the floor vision to be a point guard at the next level. He shows remarkable control with the ball, averaging just 1.9 turnovers per game. His long arms, lateral quickness and big time hops allow him to guard just about anyone in the back court

Downside: Is he really a point guard? Every guard that leads his team in scoring and assists has to go through this inquiry. Scouts concede that Harris has to carry most of the burden on his back every game. He sometimes overdoes it, but that's probably just a byproduct of the teams he's on. Strength is also an issue. He could stand to gain another 10 to 15 pounds of muscle.

Insider Projection: No point guard has gained more ground this year than Harris. He really wasn't on most scouts' radar screens at the start of the season, but now some of them believe he's the best point guard in college basketball. Right now he's a mid to late lottery pick.
