The Jazz have resumed their pre-draft workouts following the NBA scouting combine with another six players who are in town to show the Utah brass what they can do. The most notable names of the bunch are Big 12 Player of the Year Melvin Ejim (Iowa State), SEC Player of the Year Scotty Wilbekin (Florida) and Niels Giffey from the national champion Connecticut Huskies. Here is a look at how each player performed during their time in the NCAA and what each player's strengths are.

Some of these prospects, especially the bigger guys first on the list, have some impressive stats. There are some good wing rebounders in there and rebounding typically is a skill that translates from College to the pros.

Will be interesting to see if they draft a PG later on.

They should have Raul Neto this coming year as well as Trey Burke so drafting a true Point Guard would be foolish unless they think the guy can start today. The Jazz now know where they are drafting so it is time they start looking at some potential first round picks and not at a bunch of guys who probably won't even get drafted. Ejim is the only player on this list that is even projected to be drafted! Come on Jazz!
