Although the extraordinary freshman class and a few other underclassmen have taken most of the headlines about the 2014 NBA draft, there are plenty of talented seniors who left their mark on college basketball this season. Doug McDermott of Creighton won every major National Player of the Year award and was an Associated Press first team All-American. Three other seniors also earned AP first team All-American honors; Shabazz Napier of UConn, Russ Smith of Louisville and Sean Kilpatrick of Cincinnati. Even though none of the seniors are expected to be selected in the first few picks, plenty of them will hear their name called on draft night. Here is a look at the seniors who have a chance to be drafted, including a handful of players who may end up in a Jazz uniform.

Even with deep pockets the Jazz are hurting as they have no stars and nobody on this list is going to step into the NBA and make a huge impact their first 2-3 seasons.

The Jazz used to have a history of winning. When you look at the teams in the first round of the playoffs it is apparent the Jazz do not belong there, it is sad to see on the current course it might be years before the Jazz can play at the playoff level again.

The community is looking to Lindsay to make it happen and bring it together. The team needs to trade for a star that can gather the team and take them on his back to the next level. The team also needs a coach to lead and demand better play and defense from the existing players.

Mr Lindsay we await your first salvo.
