The 2014 NBA draft tracker: Potential No. 5 pick in town to work out

The Jazz have eight college players in town to show of their skills on Monday in one of the most important work outs that Utah has had in the pre draft process.  Of the eight college stars coming into town, Noah Vonleh is the most acclaimed by far.  Vonleh is projected to be one of the top players selected in the upcoming draft and could potentially land with the Jazz with the No. 5 pick.  He will be joined by two impressive wing scorers who have first round potential in Markel Brown and C.J. Fair.

Two other workout attendees will be in town to showcase their skills for the Jazz a second time in Jarred Shaw and Jamil Wilson.

Here is a look at how each player performed in college.

Bryon Allen, 6-3, 202, guard, George Mason:  Allen is a pass first point guard who has made huge improvements to his jump shot over his four years on the floor at George Mason.  His most productive season came in 2013-14 when Allen averaged a career-high 15.4 points on 39.1 percent shooting from behind the arc to go along with 3.9 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 games.

For his career, Allen averaged 8.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and three assists in 127 games.

Markel Brown, 6-3, 190, guard, Oklahoma State: even though Marcus Smart got most of the publicity, Brown did plenty of the heavy lifting for the Cowboys over the last few seasons.  Brown has decent touch from the outside and is an excellent scorer in the midrange.  His most productive season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 17.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, one steal and a block in 34 games.

For his career, Brown averaged 12.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and one steal in 134 games.

C.J. Fair, 6-8, 215, forward, Syracuse: Fair is an aggressive wing scorer who loves to get out on the break and finish at the Rim.  Fair made steady improvements to his game during his four season with the Orange and capped it off with his best season in 2013-14.  That year, Fair averaged a career-high 16.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 34 games.

For his career, Fair averaged 11.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 143 games.

Noah Vonleh, 6-10, 240, forward, Indiana: Vonleh is a gifted athlete who is a beast on the glass and has all the potential to be a star in the NBA if he can develop.  Vonleh played for just one season at Indiana showed his ability to score both on the block and from the perimeter.  He averaged 11.3 points on 52.3 percent shooting, including 48.5 percent from 3-point range to go along with nine rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 30 games.

John Bohannon, 6-11, 210, center, UTEP: Bohannon is a very slight big man who can really score around the rim when he gets touches.  His most productive season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 11.9 points on 57.5 percent shooting, 8.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.7 blocks in 32 games.

David Wear, 6-10, 230, Forward, UCLA: David is the second Wear twin to come in and work out for the Jazz in the last couple weeks.  Like his brother, Wear showed wonderful touch from the outside in his senior season even though his minutes were cut.  His most impressive season came in 2011-12 when Wear averaged 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds in 32 games.

For his career, Wear averaged 6.8 points and 4.3 rebounds in 130 games for North Carolina and UCLA.

Jamil Wilson, 6-7, 230, forward, Marquette: Wilson is back for another opportunity to workout for the Jazz.  He is an explosive athlete who can finish with authority at the rim.  His most productive season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 11.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 32 games.

For his career, Wilson averaged 8.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 127 games for Oregon and Marquette.
