Tyshawn Taylor

Kansas senior (6-4, 177)

Taylor nearly doubled his scoring from his junior (9.3 points) to senior (16.6) senior seasons while making nearly as many three-pointers as a senior (58) as he did in his first three seasons combined (62). He's dangerous in the open court and as a penetrator in half-court sets because of his quickness, athleticism and leaping ability -- some of those same strengths make him a capable defender -- but he'll need to become a better decision maker to run an NBA team. Taylor averaged 4.8 assists and 3.5 turnovers last season, for an underwhelming assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.35 to 1. He's viewed as being on the fringe of the first round.
