With the draft just around the corner and the Raptors floundering, let's take a moment to discuss potential draft sleepers. Ed Weiland, the FedEx driver who authored the piece for hoopsanalyst.com predicting Jeremy Lin's success long before he ever played a minute in the NBA, recently mentioned the names of 2 players he believes are being under valued.

1) Jae Crowder - 6'6"

17.4 pts, 7.6 reb, 2 ast, 2.4 stl, 1 blk, 51.6% fg, 38% 3fg, 73% ft

+ versatile wing, stats have increased in his 2nd year, can shoot 3's, excellent defender

- can't create own shot, below average ball handler


2) Tony Mitchell - 6'9"

15.3 pts, 10.9 reb, 1.7 ast, 1 stl, 2.9 blk, 58.1% fg, 43.2% 3fg, 70.9% ft

+ outstanding rebounder and shot blocker, at U-18 FIBA was #1 per-minute rebounder ranking ahead of JV, great athlete, very bouncy

- limited offensively, below average ball handler


Acquiring an extra pick can be tricky and/or expensive, but if the price is right, I'd love to see BC take a flier on one of these guys.

Thoughts? Any other sleepers?
