2014 NBA Draft: Brew Hoop Community Draft Board - Pick #8

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

A skilled stretch-4 follows an inside bruiser on the board.

The seventh spot on Brew Hoop's 2014 Draft Board goes to Noah Vonleh, PF, Indiana. Vonleh has been one of the biggest risers on draft boards since the college season ended, thanks in no small part to his excellent combine measurements and athletic testing and brilliant upside. Vonleh had a decent season for a mediocre Hoosiers squad, but the tools he showed caught the eye of NBA scouts undeterred by his rawness--if anything, Vonleh's youth is one of his biggest selling points.

Vonleh was a monster on the glass at Indiana, ranking 12th in the nation in defensive rebound percentage, per Kenpom.com. He also flashed a tantalizing ability to stretch the floor, hitting almost 50% of his three-point shots (albeit on limited attempts). Combined with efficient shooting from inside the arc and at the line, Vonleh's offensive potential is outstanding. He's also a capable shot blocker (1.4 per game) and projects as a strong defender at the PF position. But this is all contingent on strong coaching, as Vonleh remains one of the more unfinished products in the draft.
