DRAYMOND GREEN, 2008: NO. 69
Coming out of high school, Draymond Green had offers from some of the top programs in the midwest, including Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio State, all of which he spurned to play for Tom Izzo at Michigan State.
Green spent four years in East Lansing, the last of which was easily his most impressive. The Golden State Warriors big man was a consensus All-American and the Big Ten Player of the Year as a senior, as well as the National Association of Basketball Coaches Player of the Year. That season, he also helped Michigan State become the Big Ten regular season and tournament champions.
Despite good standing as a high-school prospect and a ridiculous senior year where he averaged 16.2 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, Green still fell to the second round of the 2012 draft, before being taken with the 35th pick by Golden State.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
