2010 NBA Draft, Sixth Pick: Warriors Pick Baylor's Ekpe Udoh

We have our first real head scratcher of the night. Sure, the T'Wolves passing on Damarcus Cousins to grab Wes Johnson was a questionable move, but the Warriors may have one-upped them, choosing Ekpe Udoh sixth overall in the 2010 NBA Draft.

That's not to say that Udoh isn't a fine prospect -- he's an elite shot-blocker with a decent feel on the offensive end -- but the Warriors passed on Greg Monroe and Al-Farouq Aminu, both of whom are three years younger than the Baylor product. Monroe in particular would seem to fit in perfectly in Don Nelson's system as a highly skilled big who can roam the high post.

Monroe and Aminu have real star potential; Udoh is more of a solid rotation guy.
