NBA Draft preview: Kansas' Cole Aldrich

Next up in a series of possible candidates for the Pistons to draft at No. 7 overall is Kansas center Cole Aldrich. From what I've gathered from fans, bloggers and other sources is that not many people want to see the Pistons select Aldrich. The names Greg Ostertag and Bryant 'Big Country Reeves' come up when people talk about Aldrich. Comparisons that may or may not be fair. But the truth is Aldrich could be the most NBA ready big man in the draft and while he doesn't seem to have the "big-time potential" some of the other prospects do, he seemed poised to be a solid, reliable big man in the NBA for years to come. Here are some highlights for you to judge for yourself:
