NBA Draft 2012: John Hollinger Still Believes In Quincy Miller

While Quincy Miller has not made any fans in the pre-draft process, there's at least one national columnist still in his corner.

At ESPN Insider, stats guru John Hollinger crunched the numbers and rates the Baylor freshman as the No. 6 prospect in the entire draft:

The other wing everybody is sleeping on is Quincy Miller of Baylor, who put up a strong mark despite coming off an ACL injury. He has more questions marks because of the knee and his bony build, but he is long and can score. The stories of him slipping have me baffled, because he rates as a top-10 pick.

One thing Hollinger may have stumbled upon is that Miller was a fairly efficient scorer as a freshman. While he averaged only 10.6 points a game, he got those while shooting 45% from the floor, 35% from the three and 82% from the free-throw line.

Miller's biggest problem wasn't anything he was doing, just that he never got the ball enough at Waco.
