Pretty good list, I would put Cage ahead of Turpin because he simply played more games. Robertson might be a bit high too. But overall, not a bad list...

I remember attending a Jazz-Pacers game that year and sitting behind the Pacers basket during pregame warmups. Rookies, Stansbury and Fleming were putting on quite the dunk show. Stansbury played very well in that game and it surprised me that he only lasted 3 seasons. 1984 was definitely an incredible draft year. Lucky for the Jazz, Stockton was relatively unknown among most other teams at the time.

And this illustrates once again how much of a crapshoot the draft is. Looking back with 30 years of hindsight, the fact that Michael Jordan went third simply makes my brain explode. But no one has a crystal ball, and the future is ... well, the future.
