Defensive Players

1) Chris Singleton- SF- 6'9” 225 lbs. (Florida State)
Singleton was the best go-to defensive stopper in the NCAA in ’10-’11. He carried the Seminoles to the tournament based almost solely on his defensive skills. He projects similarly to former UCLA product and current Milwaukee Buck Luc Richard Mbah A Moute.

2) Bismack Biyombo- C 6'9" 243 lbs. (Congo)
Biyombo is a shot blocking machine. He had the first ever triple-double at the Hoop Summit with 12 points, 11 boards and 10 blocks. He also measured a 7'7" wingspan, a full 10 inches longer than his height.

3) Derrick Williams- F- 6'9” 248 lbs. (Arizona)
No one in the country plays with as much energy as Williams. He may not have the best instincts, but the final product will speak for itself.

4) Jan Vesley- SF- 6'11” 240 lbs. (Czech Republic)
Unlike Williams, Vesely exerts most of his energy on the defensive end. He’s an above average athlete with good instincts, and he’ll be a solid role player in the Shane Battier mold from day one.

5) Tyler Honeycutt- SG- 6'8” 186 lbs. (UCLA)
Honeycutt may be the best perimeter defender in the class. As a guard, he led the Pac 10 in blocks last season and his length will translate well in the NBA. His offensive game is raw, but he’ll fill an important defensive role for whichever team drafts hm.
