Mock drafts and general speculation that I’ve seen don’t project North Carolina’s Ty Lawson to go especially high in the NBA draft. So it seems notable that Dave Berri and John Hollinger have both independently come to the conclusion, based on different ratings systems, that he’s being badly underrated and may be the second best player in the draft.

The key point would seem to be that Lawson is an extremely efficient scorer. Last season he shot .472 from three point, .532 from the field, and .798 from the free throw line. That’s excellent across the board, and suggests a very useful player despite being on the short side.
