Big 12 NBA Draft History: With the 60th Overall Pick...

Best Big 12 Player Drafted #60: Will Blalock, Iowa St. Cyclones, by the Detroit Pistons in 2006
Declaring for the draft after his junior year in Ames, Blalock became 2006's Mr. Irrelevant going to the Motor City with last pick in the draft. Despite going last, the point guard actually saw some NBA action, playing in 14 games while averaging 1.8 points and 1.1 rebounds per game during the 2006-07 season. After that Blalock has bounced around other leagues, and is currently playing professionally in Australia.
