4. Devin Carter

Carter has taken a massive leap this season. The 6’3 guard out of Providence was an impactful defender, but his shooting, scoring, and playmaking have improved in his third college season. He is averaging 19.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.0 block in 34.8 minutes per game.

His shooting will be a swing skill in the NBA. Carter shot just 28.8 percent from 3-point range on 2.8 attempts per game in his first two college seasons. This year, he is taking 6.5 attempts each night and making 39.6 percent of them. If Carter is an elite shooter and defender his stock will skyrocket.

There will still be questions about his jumper and optimal role. He is best as a secondary or tertiary creator. Someone that can guard at the point of attack and be a menace off the ball, while sinking open shots and keeping things moving. The Raptors have Scottie Barnes and Immanuel Quickley, which makes Carter a fantastic fit capable of playing an impactful role quickly if his shooting holds up.

Devin Carter must continue making shots to continue climbing up draft boards. He is projected to go in the 20s but could get into the late lottery if things break right. The Raptors will have interest but may choose to go in a different direction.
