Fresh off a highly entertaining March Madness run, here are updated mock drafts by B/R’s Jonathan Wasserman, Jeremy Woo at Sports Illustrated, Tankathon, and Jonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz from ESPN/Draft Express. While the consensus top 5 seems locked in, there’s been a decent amount of movement in the back half of the lottery after the strong tourney play from Davion Mitchell and Franz Wagner. And with some uninspiring tourney games by Moses Moody, Keon Johnson and James Bouknight, players like Jalen Johnson and Josh Giddey have moved up a few slots.
