Unlike last year, the 2005 WNBA Draft may not be as deep or as full of household names. However, there is plenty of talent coming out of college this spring sure to make a splash in the WNBA for years to come. After watching the NCAA Tournament these past few weeks and keeping an eye on some of the more well-known names and prospects, there still might be a few prospects out there that you have not heard about yet. And while they might have slipped below your radar, they haven't gotten past WNBA scouts are more than worthy of your consideration even if they don't go in the top two or three picks.

DeeDee Wheeler, Arizona, Point Guard:
-Extremely athletic, a great defender who can score on the perimeter, off the dribble, she can take contact and still finish. She still has to improve on some of her offensive skills to play the point in the WNBA.

Roneeka Hodges, Florida State, Shooting Guard:
-Had a great season at Florida State, and is very similar to her sister (Doneeka, with the Sparks). She probably has a more developed offensive game at this stage in her career and can be relied on to score. She is a tremendous athlete who will be a nice role player at the next level coming off the bench.

Kristen Mann, UC-Santa Barbara, Small Forward:
-A versatile post player and fierce competitor capable of playing both forward positions. She has great size for a three and plays well facing up and with her back to the basket. She can score on the perimeter and creates matchup problems. Her weakness will be her quickness and perimeter defense.

Anna Montanana, George Washington, Small Forward:
-A very deceiving player. She doesn't have the typical body for a WNBA player, but she has great basketball instincts and understands the game very well. She can handle the ball and score even though she looks like she can't play at all. Quickness will be a question and she faces a tough transition because she is undersized, but has all the fundamentals you would want in a player.

Sancho Lyttle, Houston, Center:
-A raw athlete and great rebounder who needs to continue to develop her basketball skills. She has not played a lot of basketball, but at the next level, she will be a role player who could develop into an impact player with some additonal time overseas. She is an undersized post who also needs to work on perimeter shooting and ball-handling.

Dionnah Jackson, Oklahoma, Shooting Guard:
-A versatile player for Oklahoma who played three or four positions over her career. She can do it all. At her size, she gets a lot of rebounds while defending bigger players. She will play two in the WNBA, so she needs to become more of a scorer and develop that aggressive mentality as well as work on her point guard skills . She could also add some bulk to her frame.

Caity Matter, Ohio State, Shooting Guard:
-An excellent shooter that can stretch the defense. She benefitted from having one of the top post players in the country on her team, so she could be a good fit in a system where there is a solid inside game. She still has to develop her mid-range game and work on creating own shots. Most of her shots come from open looks when defender doubles down on the post.

Jenni Dant, DePaul, Point Guard:
-A scorer, she led DePaul's high-powered offense. She is a great three-point shooter with a quick first step, she scores off the dribble and is active defensively. She is still a bit streaky and could be more consistent. Pre-Draft camp will be important for her.

Kara Braxton, Georgia, Center:
-Has not played college basketball the past two years, so she is a big risk with tremendous upside. She is a solid post player with great size in the post, great hands and footwork and good touch around the basket. However she just had a baby in the fall. Can she make an impact this year?

Catherine Kraayeveld, Oregon, Power Forward:
-Had great NCAA Tournament, especially her head-to-head matchup against Sandora Irvin in the first round. She is a versatile player who may not get as much publicity, but can score from the perimeter and with her back to the basket. She is an intriguing player who could use Pre-Draft camp to earn herself a spot on a roster just because the post positions are not as deep this year.

Kristin Haynie, Michigan State, Point Guard:
-This year's version of Lindsay Whalen, the Big Ten guard who made a name for herself by leading her team to a Final Four. After her triple-double against Vanderbilt, she is on everyone's radar. She is athletic, active, competitive and can hit a big shot. She sees the floor well, creates for herself and her teammates and can score off the dribble or the pass with great poise. She is also a good rebounder for her size.
