Earlier today, Thomas Pruitt wrote out his reasons why Marquette's Jae Crowder is his sleeper in the 2012 NBA Draft. According to Pruitt, the Wizards should consider moving up into the first round to secure Crowder's services.
Take him. Seriously, do whatever you need to. Once the third pick in the draft is done with, Washington's strategy for the night should be focused on picking him up late in the first round if need be.
Now, it's your chance to talk back. Since we're discontinuing the draft board, who do you think is the biggest sleeper in the 2012 NBA Draft? The only guidelines: think of a player who a) was not listed on our draft board, and b) may be available when the Wizards pick at No. 32.
We asked this question on Twitter, and got a number of responses. We'll list those below the jump.

@BulletsForever Scott machado. could end up being the best PURE point guard in this draft. I see lillard as more of a combo guard anyway.— Rafael De La Rosa (@Rafy122) June 26, 2012
@BulletsForever Darius Miller. NBA size and can come in and do a bit of everything. Shoot, defend, rebound, handle the ball, create shot.— Tyler Henderson (@Ty_Hendy) June 26, 2012
@BulletsForever Jeff Taylor from Vandy. Seeing him out of the first round in a lot of mocks. Absolute steal potential— Jey Rheta ® (@JKCove) June 26, 2012
@BulletsForever I like Kyle O'Quinn as a sleeper— noggalicious (@nog_lip) June 26, 2012
@BulletsForever Not sure that he's necessarily a sleeper, but Orlando Johnson.— Kevin Hine (@KevinHineWoA) June 26, 2012
@BulletsForever mine's Crowder as well.— TJ (@dallasshaldune) June 26, 2012
