DJ Augustin put up great scoring numbers but his points per 40 is still lower than Trey Burke's. He also got drafted by the Bobcats. Without other good players around you, it's hard to put up good assist numbers. His rookie year looks as good as CP3 except for the assists. After that he kinda lost his way and has become a journeyman.

Kemba Walker's numbers aren't in the same league as Trey Burke when it comes to scoring and assists but he was a highly touted college player and lottery pick. He also got drafted by the Bobcats. However, he did start to put up decent numbers at the end of last year (17.7 ppg, 5.7 ast, 18.86 PER).

Jameer Nelson doesn't score or pass as much but he really shoots the ball well. He did however benefit from the shorter college 3 point line. He made one all star appearance in 2009.

Darren Collison's numbers aren't really in the same league as Burke's either. He was a 4 year player and never really improved much from his sophomore year. As a pro he fits Kelly Dwyer's description of a career backup.

Johnny Flynn's numbers are comparable. He got drafted immediately after Ricky Rubio (along with Ty Lawson) and the David Kahn jokes haven't stopped. His team wanted to play the triangle and not the pick and roll which was his strength. When he got hurt, the team rushed him back and he never recovered. Once Rubio decided to come over he was quickly cast off as damaged goods. If it wasn't for his injury, he would have turned out pretty good. His rookie numbers were 13.5 and 4.4 ast in 28 mins. Here's the story http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/9547629/the-struggles-former-lottery-pick-jonny-flynn

All in all Trey Burke projects to be better than all of these guys.
