This matchup is a battle of seasoning versus potential. We have a player who could be a key defender and shooter off the bench, Reggie Bullock, going against a player that has the potential to become a star if he develops right, C.J. Leslie. Having two prospects who are really not that similar to each other should be a good, close vote in the poll below the article, Who will win this intriguing battle and move on to the quarterfinals?

Below are the usual breakdonw son both prospects form ESPN's Chad Ford and SB Nation partner, Draft Express. If you want to learn more about Bullock and Leslie, pay attention to the details provided on them.

Bullock or Leslie would provide more depth to Indiana's frontcourt next season. Both of these players' stocks have risen to have them i the mid-late first round, come draft night. I throw the question back to you guys about Bullock and Leslie. Would you rather have a seasoned pick like Bullock, or a player who has massive potential, like Leslie? That will be for you to decide in the poll and comments below. Either way, both of these prospects I would be fine with, if they were selected by the Pacers on Thursday.

After the analysis from ESPN's Chad Ford and Draft Express, who will advance on to the quarterfinals? Will it be Reggie Bullock or C.j. Leslie receiving your vote to move on in the Indy Cornrows 23rd Pick Tournament?
