Good luck to Culpepper. Culpepper has a chance but I think Stone has the greater chance to get drafted. The priority for every nba team these days is to have a top point guard and having not played point guard at Utep may set him back. I dont see why he still can't play a shooting guard even at his height in the nba. If he doesn't get drafted there is nothing wrong with playing overseas to develop and get more experience. Many players playing today have started overseas and worked there way to the nba. Just look at the Spurs roster alone...Parker,Ginoboli,Splitt er,Neal to name of few who started overseas.

one thing that i saw randy lack in his years at UTEP , is his inability to defend PGs..he doesnt extend his arms, he comes off of screens late and can be careless with the ball. If he works on those things he can definitely succeed as a back up PG in the nba. Otherwise he will be a defensive liability.

he will not make it. just being honest. cant get his own shot against bigger guards, horrific assist average thru 4 yrs, defensive liability, and lack of leadership to run the point.
