Eight potential candidates for the Bobcats' pick (fourth overall), listed alphabetically:

Name College Ht.   Wt. Key statistics from last season Rick Bonnell's comment
Anthony Bennett UNLV6-8  24016.1 ppg., 53% FG pct.Will play some at either forward spot; he's very physical.
Trey BurkeMichigan6-118718.6 ppg., 46% FG pct.Both in size and playing style he's very similar to Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker.
Alex LenMaryland7-122511.9 ppg, 7.8 rpgA skilled pick-and-roll center with solid defensive instincts.
Ben McLemoreKansas6-519015.9 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct.Competent as both driver and 3-point shooter but somewhat disappeared in NCAAs.
Nerlens NoelKentucky7-0206 4.4 bpg, 9.5 rpgSurgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament likely will keep him out until January.
Victor OladipoIndiana6-521313.6 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct.Might play the hardest of any high pick in this draft.
Otto Porter Jr.Georgetown 6-8 19716.2 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct. He has ideal size and the right skill set to be an NBA starter at small forward.
Cody ZellerIndiana7-023016.5 ppg., 8.0 rpgA more athletic version of older brother (and now-Cleveland Cavalier) Tyler
