* For the NBA and International leagues, top 25s reflect the actual top 25 list. Due to the number of college players, we've limited top 25s in NCAA to only draft prospects which better reflects the level of competition and what we feel provides highlights of a more interesting subset. Top 25s of college stats prior to 2005 will be extremely inaccurate due to the minimal number of college profiles from 2004 and before in our database
