[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison

(photo courtesy of thenewstribune.com)

With the newly released 1st round mock draft from B/R’s Jonathan Wasserman to go along with last month’s mock draft by Jonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz from ESPN/Draft Express, the first 2022 mock draft comparison is born! Perfect timing, as the conversation is starting to heat up about the who should be number one and where players will end up next year. Banchero and Holmgren seem to be consensus top-two picks, but Adrian Griffin and Jalen Hardy are at number three as we compare these two mocks below.
