Hidden Gems of the Draft

By now, we've all been discussing, arguing, and passionately making a case for who we'd like to see the Wizards draft at number 3 overall next month. Whether the guy happens to Porter, Bennett, Len, or somehow turned into a veteren player, The Wizards still possess two 2nd rounders in the 2013 draft. Grunfeld is already on record saying that "we don't need 3 rookies.", so it would appear that one or more of the players selected next month will not be with the team next season. This has been called a weak draft by many, but oftentimes the weak drafts have a lot of depth. Under the assumption that those two picks are packaged for a late first rounder and based on this draft and the needs of our team, what guys do you think can be a steal? The guy I want to see get a shot, no matter where he is drafted is Archie Goodwin. He fills a need as a bench scorer, and by providing depth behind John Wall and Bradley Beal. He is 6' 5'' in shoes, with a 6' 10'' wingspan. He is a compact scoring guard that attacks the rim like his life depends on it, is very athletic, and has the tools to be a good defender. His weaknesses are a jumpshot and decision making. Since he is a very coachable player with excellent desire, by all accounts, he has a very high ceiling and could be an attractive trade asset in the future. I'd also look at Nate Wolters, Ray McCallum, Peyton Siva, and MIke Muscala if we keep one of the 2nd's. And of course Dario Saric is my guy, so I'd have no complaints with him either, but I am very interested to hear what you guys think. Who else could be a steal or late round gem for The Wizards?
