Comment From Tim 

Do the PG rankings have any correlation to a certain round that you could be selected in?

David Rawnsley: 

Tim, I think you can just do the math and draw obvious correlations, as we do the lists on our read on a player's future potential. It's no different than a team's draft board if that board only included HS players. But the reality is that there are so many variables, especially with signability, that it is not especially realistic to assign draft slots to players strictly on where we have them ranked.
