Who are some possible steals in the draft?

Question #13

MJ's Take...

In addition to the aforementioned Wisdom-Hylton, I’d say Christina Wirth (F, Vanderbilt), Sha’ Brooks (G, Florida), and Aisha Mohammed (C, Virginia). Wirth is an undersized combo forward with a high basketball IQ and a good outside shot. The knock on her is athleticism, but she found a way to be successful in the most athletic conference in the country for four years (the same conference that, last year, graduated three of the very best WNBA post prospects in recent memory). Brooks is an undersized scoring guard capable of breaking defenses down off the dribble, but some consider her Sherill Baker part deux (and that’s not a ringing endorsement). What could save her is that she is a lot more diversified offensively than Baker was at the same age and is capable of making plays off the bounce for her and others. Mohammed averaged close to a double double for her two-year career at Virginia as the strongest woman in that conference. Her health could be a concern, but it still makes you wonder why she was the only player to average a double-double this season in the ACC when she was not the only WNBA post prospect in that conference.

PS's Take...

Megan Frazee is a truly skilled big who doesn't get seen often.  If the Liberty don't make it far in the tourney, she will slide under the radar and shock people in camp.  I think Shalee Lehning and Cristi Cirone could make rosters if they get drafted by the right teams, they are true point guards who offer completely different skill sets that could make the right team even better.

CD's Take...

Marlies Gipson is someone who I think teams with needs in the post will enjoy. She flies under the radar because she's quietly effective, but she could be a difference maker.

 I also have to echo the thoughts on Christina Wirth. She's got the skillset and the frame to make it in this league. Her ability to sink outside jumpers has helped her through the years and should help her in this draft, where teams are looking for versatility.

Megan Frazee is another. She may the most pro-ready of the mid major kids. She's got legit size and skill and has the versatility which should be a hot button word during this year's draft.
