The 2014 NBA Draft is filled with talent and potential. I am sure fans have heard that many times. After all, this is being considered one of the best draft classes in quite some time. With the draft not too long from now, let’s take a look at the five most underrated small forwards the draft has to offer.

Cleanthony Early, Wichita State

Wichita State had an incredible season and a not so incredible NCAA tourney. Cleanthony Early was able to show off his talent in both. He stands at 6-foot-8, so he has good size. He can also score in a number of different ways and could be a reliable rebounder at the next level. Early went off in the tournament, which showed how good of a player he could be in the pros. Still, he has the talent to be a lottery pick -- probably won't happen.

C.J. Fair, Syracuse

How good was C.J. Fair for Syracuse this year? How about really good. After all, he did average 16.5 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game. There is a chance that he doesn’t even get draft.

Do I think Glenn Robinson III should have stayed another year at Michigan? Yes. Yes, I do. Still, his athleticism and upside are very intriguing. Those are two things NBA scouts usually drool over. His three-point shot may be inconsistent, but I am sure it will eventually get to where it needs to be.

Melvin Ejim helped make Iowa State one of the most fun teams to watch this season. After all, people love high-scoring teams (usually, but not always the case). It is amazing to think that the Big 12 Player of the Year might not even get drafted.

T.J. Warren, North Carolina State

T.J. Warren had a very, very good sophomore season. Probably the best sophomore season out of any player. That tends to be the case when a player averages 24.9 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game. He could still land in the first round, but we will have to wait and see if that will actually happen.
