   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Shooting Guards

Cory Higgins - Higgins was once a one man band at Colorado before Burks rose up and seized the team. This definitely factored in Higgins's senior season production - he averaged 16.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals per game, shooting 43% from the field and 34% from three, but all of those numbers were down from the previous season. He lost more than 7% off his field goal percentage, and the steals numbers halved. Higgins scores in isolation, often with a pull-up jumper (on which he barely jumps), and has a very good mid range game, but he had to dominate the ball to do it. When Burks's growth meant Higgins couldn't do this as much, his production suffered. He is not a very good catch-and-shoot player, lacks consistent three point range, and is neither big nor athletic for a next level wing, hindering him defensively and around the basket. He's talented, but not NBA talented.
