2011 NBA Draft Point Guard Rankings:
1. Kyrie Irving, 6’2″ Duke-
Irving is by far the best point guard in this class, and is capable of starting right away. He is a smart floor general who is equally capable of shooting and passing. He still lacks elite 3-point range, but the talent and potential are there.
2. Brandon Knight, 6’3″ Kentucky-
Knight is the closest to Irving and likely a top 10 pick, but he’s not as refined as most elite guards. He’s not the best floor general, but seems capable of growing into that role. I love his motor and quickness and think he will be a highly capable guard at the next level.
3. Kemba Walker, 6’1″ Connecticut-
Walker is not a great point guard in the classic sense, but he has ice water in his veins when the game is on the line. He is a fantastic penetrator and always comes up with the big shot when they need him.
4. Jimmer Fredette, 6’2″ BYU-
Fredette isn’t ever going to be a classic point guard, and he’s not really a great athlete, but there is upside. Fredette is the best shooter in this class and he’s a smart heady ballplayer.
5. Reggie Jackson, 6’3″ Boston College-
Jackson has been moving up draft boards and really looks to have the potential of a starting PG. Jackson isn’t the smartest point guard with the ball and at times will force up shots but he has good upside and should be a top 20 player.
6. Darius Morris, 6’2″ Michigan-
7. Josh Selby, 6’3″ Kansas-
8. Shelvin Mack, 6’2″ Butler-
9. Malcolm Lee, 6’5″ UCLA-
10. Cory Joseph, 6’3″ Syracuse-
