Nerleens Noel is, IMO, the rawest prospect EVER to be considered the #1 overall pick. I'm including Kwame Brown in that discussion as Brown was thought of as having a "soft" personality but actually a pretty advanced offensive game for his age. Nerleens Noel might be the worst offensive center I've ever seen as a kid thought of as a top pick. Not to mention he's coming off a horendous knee injury (not easy for a 7 footer to heal from that) That said...his potential is ridiculous if he adds about 50lbs. 

 

So, my question is if he drops to #4 would you take him? Most people think it would be a no-brainer. We've seen what a dominant center can do for a team (Roy Hibbert recently). But I'm not so sure. To me this kid SCREAMS Greg Oden 2.0. Maybe if he had stayed another year or two at Kentucky then you see what he is made of...but the NBA is going to squash this kid. Maybe at #4 the risk is worth the reward if he turns out but at this point I'd probably take a guy like Anthony Bennett ahead of Noel. In fact...as far as draft day ability to help your team I don't think Noel is even in the conversation for the top 10...and this is a weak weak draft. Good year not to have the #1 overall pick.

Without question.  EVERY prospect has question marks in this draft, and he's the best/probably safest based on his defensive potential alone.

If he drops to four chances of a trade increase. Id be all about a trade at that point. I would prefer him over olidipo (sp) though.
