Here's a look at five players who have helped their draft stock over the past week.

Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa
Before the season began, we had Jordan ranked as the 10th-best prospect in the draft. His size and agility, combined with an impressive performance at LeBron's summer camp, had scouts drooling.

After a lukewarm start to the season, Jordan has been phenomenal of late. He has dropped double-doubles in five of his past six games, including an impressive 20-point, 13-rebound performance against Memphis on Tuesday, carrying Tulsa on his shoulders and almost producing the upset.
