Is the PG of the future in this draft?

So obviously the position that we are weakest in is point guard. I feel like that if we could get a quality point guard in this draft and created a "Core 5" and handed them the reins of the team, then we would be set for the future. But what are the odds that a PG of the future will be available in picks 14-21 in this years draft? I decided to take a look at previous drafts dating back to 2000 to see what PG's were taken in that range to see if any of them would be considered a PG of the future for us right now. Here's what I found:

2012: N/A

2011: Nolan Smith

2010: Eric Bledsoe

2009: Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson, Jeff Teague, Eric Maynor, Darren Collison

2008: N/A

2007: Javaris Crittenton

2006: Rajon Rondo

2005: Nate Robinson

2004: Jameer Nelson

2003: Luke Ridnour, Troy Bell

2002: N/A

2001: N/A

2000: Mateen Cleaves, "Speedy" Claxton

Obviously there were plenty of quality guards taken later or a little bit earlier in some of those drafts (e.g. Tony Parker) that we would love to have. But I just wanted to see what PG's that were projected in that range would be good PGOTF. Out of those 15 point guards, I personally, would only want 4 of them to star along with the C4: Rondo (without the attitude), Holiday, Lawson, and Bledsoe. 4 out of 15 in 13 years? Those are not good odds.

I really like Cj McCollum and Dennis Schroeder, but I have no idea if they are our PGOTF. What do you think? Is there REALLY a Point Guard of the Future within our range in this draft? If so who?
