Keep in mind that today was a neutral court game while tomorrow's game will be a true road game.

    NBA.com has him projected going 25th in the first round this year. Not saying that's a lock but if you are projected in the 1st round by anyone especially the NBA, don't sit here and tell me he has no chance whatsoever to get drafted.

    Come on man, the clock guy knows his sh!! t, show some respect. EP has zero chance of going in the first round, he knows, he has been in on lots of NBA drafts.

    Not that Elfrid needs motivation, but I would tell him the opposite.

    The biggest check UL Basketbaal could cash tight now is a junior getting drafted.

    It would be bigger than adding a million dollars to the recruiting budget.

    He must run the clock during the draft for each team to make their pick.

    All of the prognostications that I've seen of his draft value had him a first rounder in 2015, not 2014. Are you sure you're looking at the right year?

    This is weird since I just looked at that site before being updated a few days before and he was nowhere in the first round or two. However, after perusing other mocks for both 2014 and 2015, this is the only one that I've seen having Elfrid projected in either of the first two rounds for either year

    draft express has him at 30 in 2015 draft
    http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/...n-41413/stats/

    also here is what nbadraft.net says about him
    "Payton has great agility and shows the ability to break down opponents off the dribble and get to the rim. He's a long, rangy athlete who shows tremendous foot speed and defensive tenacity. While his offensive game is hampered by a lack of shooting ability, he's developed into a solid scorer by getting to the rim for easy baskets. He skipped a grade in high school so he's an entire year younger than the junior class. He's sure to have scouts flocking to Lafayette for games all year to see him and teammate Shawn Long. NBA Comparison: Lindsey Hunter"

    Ok, I'll concede that some people think Elfrid is ready for the NBA. We'll see if he is one of them.

    I don't know if he is ready after this year, but with him being a sophomore age-wise, teams may wanna grab him now to help develop him.

    It is not always about if he is ready or not, sometimes it is about potential and upside for the future. That being said we have a long way to go before he has to make that decision. He has a long was to go before his legs are ready for a NBA season. I look forward to the day that we can watch him in the NBA just like we watch so many of our former players in the NFL. I just hope that day comes later rather than sooner.
