The teams who passed on Drummond in the top 10 may have awakened a sleeping giant: a 6'11 280 freak athlete with a 7'6 wingspan who can dunk like a shooting guard.

The Pistons have been a fairly rudderless franchise since their 2004 championship team aged out of relevance, but a young front-court of Drummond and Greg Monroe makes them one of the most intriguing young teams in the NBA. The best case scenario? Pau Gasol/Andrew Bynum 2.0.
