Pac-10 loaded next year

Not that you really need me or anyone else to tell you that as it’s pretty self-evident that the conference next season could be about the strongest it has ever been — one reason why picking UW to move up real high is kind of dicey.
But here’s even more recognition for the conference in this list of the top players in the country from NBADraft.net. The author rates the top five players at every position, and seven of the total of 25 are from the Pac-10, including two who are rated as the best at their position — small forward Chase Budinger of Arizona and power forward Ryan Anderson of Cal.
Two other Pac-10 players are rated No. 2 at their spot — point guard Darren Collison of UCLA and Oregon’s Bryce Taylor at small forward. Taylor’s ranking may seem like kind of a surprise, but I would agree completely that he’s one of the most underrated players around.
Jon Brockman is the lone UW player rated, listed as the No. 4 power forward.
