[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, August

9/12 update: new picks added from Bryan Kalbrosky of USA Today.

8/7 update: revised mock drafts from Sam Vecenie and Tankathon with the Jalen Duren news. Jonathan Givony and Jonathan Wasserman already had Duren on their mock drafts released a week before the announcement.

And just like that, the 2021 Draft is in the rearview mirror and our focus can start to shift to 2022 prospects. As is tradition each year, many of the top NBA Draft analysts release a mock draft within days or hours of the previous cycle ending to kick off the new season. This year we have mock drafts to compare by Jonathan Givony from ESPN/Draft Express, Jonathan Wasserman from B/R, Sam Vecenie from The Athletic, and our friends at Tankathon.com. While ESPN released 59 picks, most of the others only have mocked the 1st round for the time being. Also, the pick order is different for these mock drafts based on varying NBA championship odds for 2021-2022 season–and Sam Vecenie who did not even include actual teams, just pick numbers.
