Few freshmen basketball players had as rocky a season as Kansas forward Cliff Alexander. The 6-foot-9 Alexander came to Lawrence as the top power forward in his class, but entered the NBA Draft after playing just 17.6 minutes per game in 28 games for the Jayhawks. Alexander missed the final eight games of KU's season due to eligibility concerns. When asked about his tumultuous year, he told Draft Expressthat he was "dealt a bad hand of cards."
Alexander doesn't seem thrilled with the amount of time head coach Bill Self gave him on the court.

Alexander's stock is probably not what it was expected to be when he entered the year, but if he pans out, a team can potentially steal a lottery talent in the second round.
