NBA Rookie Rankings

The following is a list of the top 100 NBA rookies for the 2012-13 season.  This list is not limited to 2012 draftees, but it includes top draftees from past years who have not played a game in the NBA.  The focus of this ranking is on their fantasy impact, so their ability to crack a lineup or feed off of quality players is considered.

1) :NOR: F Anthony Davis - Should be an elite defender in the NBA with his tremendous rebounding and blocking potential. Probably will take a few years to be groomed into being a high scoring big man.
2) :CHA: F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist -
3) :WAS-NBA: G Bradley Beal - Some question his ability to be a legit scorer since he wasn't a good shooter at Florida. He'll have to improve his shooting if he is going to succeed at the next level.
4) :SAC: F Thomas Robinson - Will live on the boards and get 8+ rebounds per game.
5) :GS: F Harrison Barnes -
6) :DET-NBA: C Andre Drummond - going to be a top 5 guy, top 10 at worst, but we have some serious reservations about him being able to assert his will at the next level.  There is a real learning curve for him to adjust.
7) :NOR: G Austin Rivers - Great scoring potential. Barring in injuries, he could be a legit 20+ PPG guy in a few years
8) :TOR-NBA: C Jonas Valančiūnas - Lithuanian product, drafted 5th overall in 2011 is still a rookie… Great rebounding and blocking potential.
9) :PHX: G Kendall Marshall - Has the potential to be a great assist guy in the NBA. Will have to be behind Dragic in Phoenix first though.
10) :HOU-NBA: G Jeremy Lamb -
11) :PHI-NBA: F Moe Harkless - a work in progress, but should be shooting up the prospect list because of his raw talent.  It may take 2-3 seasons to groom him, but he has some serious talent.
12) :POR: G Damian Lillard -
13) :BOS-NBA: F Jared Sullinger - Back injuries could derail his career before too long. But if he can find a way to stay healthy and overcome the back issues, should be a steal for Boston.
14) :TOR-NBA: G Terrence Ross -
15) :CLE-NBA: G Dion Waiters -
16) :OKC: F Perry Jones III - has the potential to be a perennial all-star and is undervalued in my book.  He has the reputation of not working hard enough, but I think is because he makes it look easy and with his supporting cast has not had to put up monster numbers.
17) :MIL-NBA: F John Henson -
18) :MIA-NBA: F Arnett Moultrie -
19) :POR: C Meyers Leonard - Plenty of raw talent and size here (7-1)
20) :DAL-NBA: C Tyler Zeller -
21) :HOU-NBA: F Terrence Jones -
22) :HOU-NBA: F Royce White -
23) :ORL: F Andrew Nicholson - Highest drafted player not born in USA (Canada) in 2012
24) :CHI-NBA: G Marquis Teague -
25) :ATL-NBA: G John Jenkins -
26) :GS: C Festus Ezeli - Nigerian born Festus (insert Seinfeld reference) part of Vandy tandem that could surge in the NBA
27) :DEN-NBA: F Quincy Miller -
28) :GS: F Draymond Green -
29) :MIL-NBA: G Doron Lamb -
30) :MEM: G Tony Wroten -
31) :MIN-NBA: F Donatas Motiejunas - Another Lithuanian big man drafted in 2011
32) :POR: G Will Barton -
33) :CHA: F Jeffery Taylor - Sweden product has some potential and plenty of opportunity in Charlotte
34) :BOS-NBA: C Fab Melo - Brazilian born Melo lands in Beantown where he can learn from greats and hopefully fill their shoes years to come
35) :CLE-NBA: G Jared Cunningham - Cleveland is putting together a team deep in young talent
36) :DEN-NBA: G Evan Fournier - Frenchmen Fournier has some work to do
37) :WAS-NBA: G Tomas Satoransky - Spanish ball experience could give this Czech an edge with plethora of guards in D.C.
38) :CLE-NBA: F Kevin Jones -
39) :MIN-NBA: G William Buford - Undrafted, but considered top 40 prospect
40) :DET-NBA: F Khris Middleton -
41) :DET-NBA: F Kyle Singler - After a year in Europe, what are the expectations for the Duke standout?
42) :ATL-NBA: F Mike Scott -
43) :UT: G Kevin Murphy -
44) :NOR: F Darius Miller -
45) F JaMychal Green -

51) :DET-NBA: G Kim English -
52) :POR: F Victor Claver - Has been playing Spanish ball since he was drafted in 2009, but he just signed a three-year deal with the Blazers in July 2012

54) :CLE-NBA: F Jae Crowder -
