While national media continues shining a light on college basketball’s premiere stars, let’s take a detailed look at a few Chicago Bulls draft day sleepers.

Each year, the media circus never fails to perform their ritual-like parading around of the ‘Next Big Thing’. Sometimes these prospects pan out, and sometimes they don’t. One thing you can always be sure of though is the talent hiding in the back alleys of every draft can’t wait to sneak up on the rest of the league. Thankfully, the Chicago Bulls‘ scouting department has had a keen eye in the drafts of recent years.

Hopefully, this year’s draft proves to be no exception, as these underrated prospects duke it out in the NCAA tournament. Perhaps March Madness will bear witness to this year’s rendition of Jimmy Butler or Rudy Gobert, All-NBA caliber players that fell deep in their respective drafts.

With an upcoming high lottery pick as well as a second-round pick snatched up in the deal that sent Justin Holiday to the Grizzlies, the Chicago Bulls must scour every corner of the upcoming draft pool to ensure they add fresh talent to the roster.

Thankfully, there’s no finer platform to see just how good these prospects really are than under the intense pressure of March Madness. Let’s explore a few options worth investigating as the June 20th draft date gradually closes in.
