While the 2009 draft appears to be weak in talent, things are looking much better for the 2010 draft. I know it's ridiculously early, but here's our best take on the top 10 prospects in '10.

1. John Wall, PG, Fr., Undeclared
Wall would have been a top-5 pick in the 2009 draft had he declared. His combination of size and athleticism at point guard make the Derrick Rose comparisons inevitable. While Rose is physically stronger, Wall is a better shooter. It will be interesting to see where he plays college ball.

2. Ed Davis, PF, So., North Carolina
Davis also passed on the opportunity to be a top 5 pick this year. Roy Williams has promised to move him into the starting lineup and give him more minutes. If he keeps doing what he's doing and bulks up a little bit, he'll challenge Wall for the top position next year.
