Andrew Wiggins

  1. Cleveland | Andrew Wiggins | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Kansas | 19

Ridiculous size, length and athleticism. One of the best second jumps I've ever seen. Underrated shooting ability and range. Solid handles and passing ability but must improve if playing SG full time. Combo of him and Greek Freak could be devastating on both ends of the court if they both reach potential. The problem with his comparisons to TMac, Pippen, and Paul George is his playmaking ability, or lack thereof. The Bucks go with Wiggins over Embiid bc of his injury problem and Wiggins tremendous upside.
Jabari Parker

  2. Milwaukee | Jabari Parker | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | Duke | 19

Very good size and length for position with underrated athleticism. Pro training in the NBA should get him in even better shape, which could really help him on the perimeter. Amazing versatility with the ball in his hands. Able to shoot from anywhere on the court, drive to the hole in a variety of ways, and even post up legitimate low post players. People knock his defense, but he was stuck in college. He usually played out of position against other power forwards and when he wasn't he was typically playing against smaller, faster perimeter players. Again, NBA conditioning should really help in this department. Sixers go with Parker again because of the injury, but also because they need perimeter shooting and scoring in a bad way and Parker could be a franchise changing talent on the offensive end.
Joel Embiid

  3. *Philadelphia | Joel Embiid | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kansas | 20

Finally, Embiid! Just so everybody knows, this is NOT where I believe he should go. I personally think he has the highest upside in this draft. I am a HUGE fan of his. But like I said before, his injury concern is real for me. Most people his age don't have any problems at all recovering from injury, but when you are his size, it is so much harder to recover. It's harder to stay away from injuries in the future as well. Having said all that, he has the IT factor in my opinion. He just gets it in every aspect of the game. If he had grown up playing his whole life, he would be the number 1 pick with a BROKEN back. It is just a matter of time (and staying healthy) before his skills come together in dominant fashion. He really could be a Duncan or Olajuwon type of player.
Dante Exum

  4. Orlando | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 19

Amazing first step and all around quickness to go along with very good size for his position. I don't see him as a true point guard and I think the Penny comparisons are way off. He may be built like him and have a similar game, but his playmaking ability isn't even close to what Penny's was. If he ends up as a quicker version of Gordon Hayward or Nic Batum then he will be doing good. Having two athletic guards who can both handle the ball on the perimeter with Oladipo will be fantastic to watch. Oladipo isn't a great shooter to compliment Exum, but he doesn't need the ball to make an impact. They still have Afflalo for now who can help with spacing the floor. By now, you are wondering about Embiid. "Ok, he fell past Wiggins and Parker, but no way he drops past 3." Well, with guys like Noel, Drummond, and Monroe all dropping to at least 6 after hearing top 3 potential, I really believe Embiied's back issue could cause him to drop out of the top 3.
Noah Vonleh

  5. Utah | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 18

Marcus Smart

  6. *Boston | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

One of my favorite college players to watch this year. I could care less about his "issues" because this guy is a baller. He finds ways to get things done and to will his team to victory at times as well, despite his lack of natural talent and scoring ability. I view him as a two who can run the offense at times like I do with Exum. He doesn't need the ball in his hands like a lot of people assume, because he will set picks and crash the boards. He doesn't even need to score to be effective because of his tenacious D and great ability to rebound the ball. He shows so iffy playmaking ability at times, usually because he is just trying too hard. He could be a great fit in LA with Kobe, especially if they bring in some shooters. His size and defense will allow him to always guard the better player, allowing Kobe to focus more on scoring. This also allows Kobe to somewhat rest during the game so he can take over at the end.
Julius Randle

  7. LA Lakers | Julius Randle | 6-9 | 250 | PF | Kentucky | 19

Not too sure which direction the Jazz will go with their duo of Favors and Kanter, but either way, Randle's explosive style of play will compliment both of them. The way he is built and plays reminds me of Blake Griffin at Oklahoma. He is so strong and explosive. He plays very hard (most of the time). He has the ability to put the ball on the floor, especially for his size and position. He also has shorter arms and isn't the best shot blocker and gets caught under the rim more often than he should.. Just like Griffin. If he ends up being 75% the player Griffin is, he is a steal at 4.
Aaron Gordon

  8. Sacramento | Aaron Gordon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Arizona | 18

I have Gordon a little higher than a lot of people, but I believe in this kid. He plays so freakin hard on every single play. He changes the game with his intensity alone. He crashes the boards and plays hard on D. He runs the floor and finishes with the best of them with his freakish athleticism. Sacramento goes with him to compliment Cousins bc he doesn't need to score, he plays D, and he always hustles.
Doug McDermott

  9. *Charlotte | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 22

Gary Harris

  10. *Orlando | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 19

Nik Stauskas

  11. *Chicago | Nik Stauskas | 6-6 | 207 | SG | Michigan | 20

Zach LaVine

  12. *Philadelphia | Zach LaVine | 6-6 | 180 | PG/SG | UCLA | 19

Adreian Payne

  13. *Minnesota | Adreian Payne | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Michigan St. | 23

Rodney Hood

  14. *Phoenix | Rodney Hood | 6-8 | 208 | SF | Duke | 21

A lot of people are seeming to fall OUT of love with Hood lately. He has been viewed as a lottery pick all season and a bad final game drops him out of it? I disagree. His shooting ability is outstanding. He can shoot from anywhere on the court and is underrated in his offensive versatility and playmaking. He will never be a great rebounder or defender, but I don't think he will be bad either thanks to his size, length, and sneaky athleticism. Cleveland needs perimeter shooters, they need consistency and efficiency on the offensive end to help Irving, and they need a 3. Check, check, and check for Hood.
Dario Saric

  15. *Atlanta | Dario Saric | 6-10 | 225 | SF/PF | Croatia | 20

  16. *Denver | Elfrid Payton | 6-4 | 185 | PG | Louisiana Lafayette | 20
