Just like every year, there are some very good shooting guards who won’t even get picked up in this summer’s draft. Although a couple of the players on this list should, in fact, get drafted, there are one or two who may not. Regardless, let’s take a look at the five most underrated SGs in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Jordan Adams, UCLA

So what if Jordan Adams isn’t the most athletic shooting guard in the 2014 NBA Draft. He can still be a great scorer for whichever team picks him up. Not to mention, he has a pretty good shot -- 35.6 percent from deep this season. He was even a solid rebounder this year, grabbing 5.3 boards per game.

Jordan McRae, Tennessee

Jordan McRae has all of the skills to be a solid shooting guard at the next level. He’s athletic, has decent size (6-foot-5), he can shoot and he is a great scorer. His stat line backs some of this up: 18.7 points per game, 35.1 percent from deep. He may not be the most talented player in the draft, but he is definitely a good one.

Jabari Brown, Missouri

Who knows where Missouri would be this year without Jabari Brown. After all, he did average 19.9 points per game and shot a beastly 41 percent from behind the arc. If Brown can find more consistency at the next level, he could really surprise a lot of people. He is a great shooter who can get to the rim. Scoring is the name of the game with Jabari Brown.

Markel Brown, Oklahoma State

Believe it or not, Marcus Smart was not the only player on Oklahoma State this year. There was also Markel Brown. Plain and simple, he had a great senior year. He averaged 17.2 points per game, 5.3 rebounds per game and shot 37.9 percent from behind the arc. Sure, he may be undersized at 6-foot-3, but he racked up those rebounds regardless.

It’s amazing to think how good of a career Sean Kilpatrick had and he may not even get drafted. He’s undersized and already 24, but that’s fine. Talent is talent and that is exactly what Kilpatrick has. He is a solid shooter (93 threes this year), great scorer (20.6 PPG) and he can also get to the rim.
