One of the biggest surprises of this year's NBA Draft involved Michael Porter Jr.

Widely touted as one of the top prospects heading into draft night and even regarded as a potential number one overall selection as recently as last year, Porter instead dropped down the board.

It wasn't until the Denver Nuggets' turn to select with the 14th pick that Porter finally heard his name called, ending what was had turned into a surprising tumble.

For his part, Porter seems to be taking the draft night slide in stride, and he's even learning the best lessons from it.

Calling in recently to "The Dan Patrick Show," Porter said that he feels that he got drafted into the "perfect situation."
