One may look at the list of prospects coming in to workout for the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, May 27th and 28th and think to themselves: These guys won't be going 7th overall in the June 25th draft! While that may be true, the Nuggets do have the 57th pick, the ability to trade for another pick, and the chance to sign any rookie free agents to play on their summer league squad in Las Vegas or to attend training camp ahead of the 2015-16 season.

The best part about the guys on this list? I can say I went to the same college as five of the guys above: Fort Lewis (my freshman year), Colorado State (for a couple years), and Metro St. (where I learned how to learn!).

It will be interesting to see if the Nuggets wind up picking one of these guys in the second round or if they sign any of them to play on the Summer League team in Vegas. Stay tuned...
