11. Yves Missi, C, Baylor

Still a very raw prospect and a somewhat limited offensive player at this point in his development, Yves Missy is a big man to keep an eye on heading into the NCAA Tournament. He's a big part of what makes the Baylor team go. What he's able to do to protect the pain on the defensive end is not something that should be overshadowed.

As a true 7-footer, Missi has the athleticism to make enough of an impact on the offensive end on the floor without having much of a honed skill set at this point in his career. That said, he needs to continue to show improvements on that end of the floor to be considered a legit first-round prospect heading into the NBA Draft.

As he prepares to make the transition to the NBA, Missi could be viewed as a defensive anchor with enough athleticism and natural skills to make a difference on both ends of the floor. If he does develop offensively, there's a good chance Missi could end up being one of the best bigs to come out of this year's draft class.
