Prospect Analysis:  Sam Bennett is projected as a first round draft pick.  The question is where?  His early ranking was mid-round but he is off to a very good start in Kingston this season and he is playing his way into a potential Top 10 and maybe even a Lottery Pick.  He is definately be a player to keep an eye on.
