Eric Hayes

Like his namesake Chuck, Eric Hayes is a master of the running layup. He will get free without the ball, cut to the basket and make the shot, in what commentators love to cite as a display of high IQ basketball. (They're not wrong. It is.) Hayes is also a very good three point shooter, a decent defender, and was the solid all-around compliment to Grevis Vasquez's wild ways. Those made him a great college player. But his significant physical disadvantages - a 6'4 shooting guard with mediocre foot speed and no leaping ability - will prevent any NBA allusions. Other than this one, of course.
