Draft Express Kevin Seraphin France | 4/5 | 6'9" | 258  18-June
Chad Ford 5.0 Hassan Whiteside Marshall | Freshman | 5 | 7'0" | 235 | ... #37 on Hollinger's Draft Rater ... "The Blazers love his talent though, like the rest of the NBA, they're worried about his maturity. However, the Blazers have the resources and culture in place to bring him along slowly, and help give him the on-court and off-court skills he needs to succeed. He's a long-term project, but with Marcus Camby mentoring him, he could be a home run." 19-June
Ridiculous Upside Kevin Seraphin France| 4/5 | 6'9" | 258... "Honestly, Seraphin just feels like a Blazers' pick. Without any immediate needs (replacing Rudy Fernandez?), the Blazers might be best off taking Seraphin and stashing him until he's ready (though he's apparently willing to come over this season). UPDATE: Seraphin apparently injured his meniscus on Monday and is out for three to four weeks. That probably doesn't bode well for his draft stock."
1-June
Sports Illustrated Luke Babbitt Nevada | Sophomore | 3 | 6'7" | 215 ... #7 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "He's a shooter with a competitive streak who rebounds and tries to defend. Babbitt can score off the dribble and supplements his three-point shooting with a midrange game." 19-May
Yahoo Sports Luke Babbitt Nevada | Sophomore | 3 | 6'7" | 215 ... #7 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Practically unknown on the national stage, Babbitt is a remarkable shooter. The left-hander averaged 21.9 points while shooting 50 percent overall, 40 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent at the foul line." 19-May
Sporting News Solomon Alabi Florida State | Sophomore | 5 | 7'1" | 251 ...  #68 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Alabi is a work in progress. Portland has size on its roster, but Joel Przybilla and Greg Oden are both coming back from multiple knee surgeries." 18-May
Dime Mag Larry Sanders VCU | Junior | 4/5 | 6'9" | 205 ... #30 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Active rebounder and defender is pretty raw, but can learn a lot under Marcus Camby and LaMarcus Aldridge (on offense)."
19-June
Real GM Larry Sanders VCU | Junior | 4/5 | 6'9" | 205 ... #30 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... Sanders doesn't have a very sophisticated offensive game, but his ability to play a junkyard style gives the Blazers some of the interior toughness they need."
15-June
Hoops Addict Larry Sanders VCU | Junior | 4/5 | 6'9" | 205 ... #30 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "It’s a shame that most people will dwell on his final conference game where he only scored six points against ODU. Before that he was tearing up the CAA Tournament until that game. He finished the season averaging 14.1 points and 9.1 rebounds and looks to be a legit bench player next season for an NBA team. I still feel he has the chance to grow into a special player." 24-May
NBADraft.Net Craig Brackins Iowa State | Junior | 4 | 6'10" | 230 19-June
HoopsWorld Gani Lawai Georgia Tech | Junior | 4/5 | 6'8" | 233 28-May
Rip City Project Patrick Patterson Kentucky | Junior | 4 | 6'8" | 223 | ... #37 on Hollinger's Draft Rater 19-June
Free Darko Argentinosaurus Argentina | International | 5 | 24' | 73 (tons) | ... Not rated on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Argentinosaurus is the perfect pick -- even at 97 million years of age, he won't be ready for the NBA for at least another season. The fossil record on this beast is startingly incomplete, but at an estimated 24-feet-tall, the potential is certainly there. I even hear Paul Allen's already booked him a sail barge to Spain, where he's likely to replace Tiago Splitter in the Real Madrid lineup." 18-May

Chad Ford 4.0 Patrick Patterson Kentucky | Junior | 4 | 6'8" | 223 | ... #37 on Hollinger's Draft Rater ... "Patterson would be a steal for the Blazers if he slips this low. While Patterson does little to wow you, he's the type of unselfish, productive big man who would fit in well with the team that Blazers GM Kevin Pritchard has put together. He measured well in Chicago and was apparently one of the best interviewees there, so he could find himself moving back up into the late lottery. But I'm still struggling to find him a home." 9-June

While he does little to wow you, he's the type of unselfish, productive big man who will fit well in the Blazers' system." 18-May
Chad Ford 1.0 Larry Sanders VCU | Junior | 4/5 | 6'9" | 205 ... #30 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Sanders is raw, but he's a young, athletic shot-blocker who gets up and down the floor and rebounds. Given the Blazers' depth, they would seem to have the time and patience to develop him over the next couple of seasons." 8-May
Ridiculous Upside Damion James Texas | Senior | 3/4 | 6'7" | 225 ... #13 on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Very few players have his combination of athleticism and motor. He doesn't have a position on offense, but he's a Spurs type of player all the way." Well, the Spurs and the Blazers both have smart front offices, so I'll assume he can be a Blazers type of player as well." 19-May
Dime Mag Elliot Williams Memphis | 2 | 6'4" |175 ...  "A year ago it seemed like depth was far from an issue with the Blazers, but now their backcourt needs a little shoring up. Williams would make an explosive second-unit guard tandem with Jerryd Bayless." 9-June

Rip City Project Dominique Jones South Florida | Junior | 1/2 | 6'4" | 205 ... Not rated on Hollinger's Draft Rater... "Jones is apparently rising on draft boards, and while he may come off as a bit of a Jerryd Bayless clone with a defensive attitude, teams are falling for Jones' ability to create his own scoring opportunities, including at the free-throw line. Wait, you're thinking, Portland has Bayless, why do they want to start a clone war? Well, if you believe Bayless could be the starting point guard in the two years, and simultaneously have little faith in Martell Webster and Rudy Fernandez being able to shoulder a significant offensive load off the bench, Portland might eventually have a need for a capable playmaker in the second unit. For that role, Jones could represent the best value." 19-May
