NBA DRAFT PICKS

Since Purdue's first NBA Draft pick in 1947 (Ed Ehlers and Paul Hoffman), the Purdue basketball program has had 47 all-time selections in the NBA Draft, including seven top-10 selections. Five players (Carl Landry, JaJuan Johnson, E'Twaun Moore, Robbie Hummel and A.J. Hammons) have been drafted during the Painter era, including four of them in the last six years.

Since the 1980 NBA Draft, Purdue is one of eight schools nationally to have two No. 1 Draft picks, joining Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, UNLV, Georgetown, Kansas and LSU.
