2. Chris Paul
6-foot point guard, sophomore, Wake Forest
2004 averages: 15.3 points, 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds
The college game's best all-around floor general, Paul will get looks at No. 1 if the team holding the pick (see: Charlotte) isn't dead-set on acquiring a post player. There is a widespread belief that Paul's production will increase once he's surrounded by NBA talent.
