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 UNLV 6-8   240 16.1 ppg., 53% FG pct. Will play some at either forward spot; he's very physical.
Trey Burke Michigan 6-1 187 18.6 ppg., 46% FG pct. Both in size and playing style he's very similar to Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker.
Alex Len Maryland 7-1 225 11.9 ppg, 7.8 rpg A skilled pick-and-roll center with solid defensive instincts.
Ben McLemore Kansas 6-5 190 15.9 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct. Competent as both driver and 3-point shooter but somewhat disappeared in NCAAs.
Nerlens Noel Kentucky 7-0 206 4.4 bpg, 9.5 rpg Surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament likely will keep him out until January.
Victor Oladipo Indiana 6-5 213 13.6 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct. Might play the hardest of any high pick in this draft.
Otto Porter Jr. Georgetown 6-8 197 16.2 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct. He has ideal size and the right skill set to be an NBA starter at small forward.
Cody Zeller Indiana 7-0 230 16.5 ppg., 8.0 rpg A more athletic version of older brother (and now-Cleveland Cavalier) Tyler
