West Coast 2005 Rankings: Point Guards

The West Coast 2005 point guards are led by several talented prospects, including Mario Chalmers, Anthony Goods and Darren Collison...

Chalmers gets the nod for the top spot due to his combination of size, skills and athleticism. He could end up playing both the one and the two in college. Goods has good size and athleticism, and he's a very good shooter. Collison is very slender, but has all the tools to be a high major point guard. Watson has great physical attributes -- long and explosive -- and he has a chance to move higher on this list if his skills continue to improve. Gibson reminds us a bit of Aaron Brooks, with good quickness and the ability to get his own shot.
