Not that shocking though. There's always first round busts and project picks, and the second round often has some nice gems hidden away.

Carlos Boozer, Gilbert Arenas, Paul Millsap, Louis Williams, Manu Ginobili, Michael Redd, Ramon Sessions, Carl Landry, Luis Scola, Rashard Lewis, Matt Barnes, Marc Gasol, Ryan Gomes, Monta Ellis and Cuttino Mobley were all taken in the second round. You could pretty much build a championship team with second rounders. If you include undrafted players, the pool gets even bigger and better...

Edit: yes, I spent 10 minutes compiling that list.
