After all the draft speculation, the mock drafts and the last-minute trades, Colorado Buffaloes guard Alec Burks went No. 12 overall to Alec Burks. This is the highest a Colorado Buffaloes player has been selected since Chauncey Billups went No. 3 overall in the 1997 draft. The last time a CU player was selected was in 2004 when David Harrison went 29th overall to the Indiana Paces.
With the Jazz, Burks can now work on becoming a shooter, as he is already a scorer. Defense will also be one area he needs to improve upon.
