I think it's very possible.
Not saying the situation is similar, but the Skal Labissiere plot that played out 2 years ago caught me by surprise. He was viewed as a lottery pick and even top 5/10 pick for a majority of the college season. Interestingly enough, his stock spiraled and I think he wasn't selected until 28.
He was soft and had a pretty poor single season at UK.
In many respects, it just took until late in the year for people to actually realize that he wasn't going to turn it around, and that he would be a much bigger project in the NBA than originally anticipated.
