The NBA draft is, by nature, filled with risk. Scouts, coaches, GMs, owners -- each has a different opinion about how to best approach it.
Do you try to find players to fit your program, or do you simply gamble on the best talent available? How much should character come into play, and can you excuse a checkered past? And how much stock do you put into upside and overall potential, compared with a prospect's floor?
My previous sleeper picks include: Klay Thompson, Steph Curry, Elfrid Payton, Kenneth Faried, Dennis Schroder, Giannis Antetokounmpo and C.J. McCollum. Previously profiled busts include: Anthony Bennett, Michael Carter-Williams, Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel.
Below are the players -- four freshmen and one junior -- whom I consider to be the five riskiest in the 2016 draft.
