There are some great point guards in the 2014 NBA Draft who won’t even get drafted. Unfortunately, that happens every year. Before the draft talk really starts to heat up, let’s take a look at the five most underrated players at the PG position. Sure, there are other field generals who are not getting enough buzz, but these five definitely deserve more respect.

Shabazz Napier, Connecticut

This is the very same Shabazz Napier who led the Connecticut Huskies to a national title this year. At times, he put the Huskies on his back. He could really excel at the next level because of his good shooting and ability to score at a high rate. Luckily for Napier, he will get drafted, but he definitely won’t be the first PG off the board.

Jahii Carson, Arizona State

I could care less that Jahii Carson is 5-foot-10. He was a big-time performer at the college level and put in two great seasons of work for the Arizona State Sun Devils. Size doesn’t matter when a player scores 18+ points per game two seasons in a row.

DeAndre Kane, Iowa State

DeAndre Kane was so good for the Iowa State Cyclones this year. He was arguably the best transfer in college hoops this year and he was arguably the best player on the court (at times). That is saying something since he played alongside the Big 12 Player of the Year (Melvin Ejim). Regardless, he averaged 17.1 points per game, 6.8 rebounds per game and 5.9 assists per game.

Who knows if Aaron Craft will even get drafted, but you would think one team would want him. He is the definition of hustle and leadership. Unlike a lot of kids his age, he plays defense just as hard as offense. You really cannot say enough good things about Craft.

Scottie Wilbekin, Florida

Scottie Wilbekin was arguably the best player on arguably the best team in college hoops this season. Just like Craft, he is a very good defender. He was also very clutch at the college level. His off-the-court issues probably aren’t very appealing, but he counters that by being a great shooter and by being one of the best PGs in the country this past season.
