Raymond Felton: 2005, Pick #5
One of the most decorated college basketball players of this century, Raymond Felton made one of the three All-American teams in each of his three years in Chapel Hill. As a junior in 2005, Felton averaged 12.9 points and 6.9 assists per game, and helped North Carolina advance to — and win — the NCAA Tournament Finals.
Felton became the third guard taken in the 2005 NBA Draft, infamously being picked immediately after two perennial All-Stars: Chris Paul and Deron Williams. Felton was a decent player during his five years in Charlotte, who took him with the aforementioned pick, though the questions about his ability to shoot the basketball certainly followed him to the NBA and lingered early on in his career. While Felton has enjoyed a 14-year NBA career to date, his overall resume doesn’t really fit with a top five NBA Draft selection.
