NBA Draft 2016: Five biggest sleepers heading into the NBA Draft Combine--CBS Sports
Kay Felder | G | Oakland (No. 49)

Felder had a chance to return to college for his senior season and break Bobby Hurley's all-time NCAA assist record, but instead decided to declare for the draft and take his chances on proving yet again that his size will not be a hindrance to his game. After all, that's what he's done throughout his entire collegiate career thus far.

Felder was possibly the most statistically dominant player in college basketball last season, finishing third nationally in scoring at 24.4 points per game and first nationally in assists per game at 9.3. Remarkably, he did this despite a usage rate that was outside of the top 20 nationally, speaking to an efficiency within his game that is exemplified by his 57.2 true shooting percentage and his low 13.9 turnover rate.

The 5-foot-9 point guard will have a big chance to prove himself this week at the combine. It's unconfirmed at this point, but it's likely that he'll play in games and get a chance to show off against superior competition that he always succeeded against in minimal sample size at Oakland. Also, look for Felder to perform exceedingly well in athletic testing, as he's a little man that can really get up and throw down if he gets the chance. Here's an example of that a few years ago back when he was in high school.

As long as Felder gets solid length measurements and performs well in interviews, he could see himself be a riser coming out of the combine.
