20. Rafael Araujo, Raptors
No. 8, First Round -- 2004

Gets the nod over Darko Milicic, mainly because Araujo is five years older than Darko, and probably won’t get much better than a rookie season that saw him average three points and three rebounds a game. As was the case with Sam Bowie years earlier, Araujo’s selection illustrates why you cannot draft for need, alone. He went about 10 spots higher than was expected, and about 25 spots higher than was deserved.
