Chad Ford has identified Alex Poythress as a potential sleeper pick to go first overall in the 2013 NBA Draft.

The popular candidates to go first have been Shabazz Muhammad, Cody Zeller and Nerlens Noel.

"Of all the players I've seen so far, he's been the most impressive and I think many NBA scouts agree with that," wrote Ford.

Poythress is a freshman at Kentucky.
