Rankings: Senior Small Forwards

The senior small forward rankings change a bit, but in our mind it's getting tighter at the top, with less of a margin between #1 and #2...

While Evan Burns is still the #1 small forward in the west coast, his lead is narrowing. While Burns is incredibly talented, and far more than anyone else on this list, there is some cracks in the armor.  There is now, after a few years of watching Burns play, a question of whether he will bring the intensity, drive and determination to live up to his potential on the next level. With how talented he is, it would be a glorious thing to see the potential actually come to fruition. In the meantime, Brandon Roy is getting better and better up in the Northwest, and does have intensity and consistency. Marquis Kately is in the upper echelon of athletes, not only on the west coast, but in the country. Josh Rhodes would have a chance to be at the top of this list if he could bring it every time he's on the court. Justin Holt is probably a combo forward, and could very likely end up playing more on the baseline at Oregon State. But he has good perimeter skills and quickness and be very versatile on the next level.
