When smart teams draft, they don't use a 1-to-30 ranking; they utilize a tier system that accounts for team need and player talent. Chad Ford, after talking to numerous teams, divides this year's crop into tiers and explains how the system works.
Chad Ford explains why surefire No. 1 pick John Wall has exhibited the first chink in his armor in this week's Stock Watch. Plus, news on the draft intentions of underclassmen Eric Bledsoe and Elias Harris and more scrutiny for Greg Monroe.
Chad Ford runs through the college and international players that helped and hurt their stock the most this summer, including a Kansas guard who could overshadow Sherron Collins and Wake Forest's Al-Farouq Aminu, who continues to disappoint.
