January 13 update: New picks added from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated and Tankathon.com.

Happy New Year to everyone–here’s to a healthy, non-mask wearing 2022, without players in health and safety protocols or game cancellations!

A fresh round of mock drafts were released last week from Bleacher Report/Jonathan Wasserman, The Athletic/Sam Vecenie, and Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, so I wanted to create a new post that helped us compare and analyze all of them. Although the picks have changed a good amount since mid-to-late December, I opted to leave the 12/22 ESPN picks from Jonathan Givony until they post an updated version.

Big movers included Wisconsin’s Johnny Davis, who was amazing in a few games, most notably in a big W against Purdue, in which he went head to head with (consensus #4 pick (for the time being) and fellow top SG prospect) Jaden Ivey. Tari Eason from LSU and Keegan Murray from Iowa are also on the rise, while hype seems to have cooled off a bit on Trevor Keels and Jaden Hardy after some subpar performances. Newcomers to the 1st round, for us to keep an eye on, include Blake Wesley from Notre Dame and Jeremy Sochan from Baylor.

In case you missed my last #mockdraftcomp, I’ve added a new sortable chart showing the pick variance for the top prospects across the mock drafts, to save everyone a bit of time. And as you’ll see the overall variance has decreased quite a bit in just a month’s time. Some of the numbers are thrown off a bit by the aforementioned ESPN picks, as Johnny Davis, for example, was #16 way back, two weeks ago–a level he will most likely never go back to unless he steal laptops, borrows money from Penny Hardaway, and/or has a couple of DUIs next month.

There will be more mock drafts posted in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications. If I’m missing any mocks that you feel belong alongside the ‘All-NBA level’ draft analysts I currently include, leave a comment or DM me on Twitter.

January 20th update: Added updated big boards from Jonathan Givony/ESPN and Chad Ford/NBA Big Board.

Chet and Paolo holding strong in the top three spots along with Jabari Smith as college basketball’s bizarro, covid-19 infected, non-conference play comes to an end. Not hearing much of anything from OTE, but a strong showing by MarJon Beauchamp at the G League Showcase has moved him into the first round discussion. Here’s a fresh set of big boards to compare the Top 50 from Jonathan Givony/ESPN, Chad Ford/NBA Big Board, and Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, and Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today.

There will be more big boards posted in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications.

College basketball is back, along with G League and OTE, which means we have a fresh set of big boards to compare from Chad Ford at NBA Big Board, Sam Vecenie at The Athletic, and Jonathan Wasserman at B/R. Jabari Smith has been the biggest mover so far, after a strong start to the season for Auburn.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, November (updated 12/22)

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/2022-mock-draft-comp-november/

12/22: Added new mock drafts from Jonathan Givony/ESPN and Tankathon. Worth noting that Tankathon is the first to have Jabari Smith at #1. Also, Givony had Kendall Brown the lowest of all the mocks at #16, as well as AJ Griffin not being drafted–which I assume they are implying he will stay for his sophomore year at Duke.

12/20: Updated mock drafts from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report and Tankathon. Also, I’ve added a new sortable chart showing the pick variance for the top prospects across the mock drafts, to save everyone a bit of time.

11/30: Updated mock drafts from Sam Vecenie/The Athletic and Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today and added a new one from Jeremy Woo/Sport Illustrated.

11/13: Jonathan Givony from ESPN/Draft Express updated his two-round mock draft this week with draft order based on ESPN BPI draft projections as of 11/8.

11/14: Updated player rankings and a new 1st round mock draft from Tankathon.com.

10/23: Jonathan Wasserman from Bleacher Report‘s posted new first round picks based on FanDuel’s projected win totals and previous trades.

10/18: Sam Vecenie from The Athletic posted all new picks with team order based on BetMGM sportsbook odds.

9/22: Bryan Kalbrosky‘s from USA Today‘s two round mock based on reversing the NBA futures odds from Tipico SportsBook.

There will be more mock drafts posted in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Big Board Comparison, September

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/2022-big-board-comp-september/.

After enjoying the delicious appetizer of 2022 NBA mock drafts the week after the draft in July, we now have the more intel coming in, with the first of many 2022 big boards from the top draft analysts, including the top 100 from ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, top 30 from Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo, and, the always reliable, Tankathon who posted their top 40. Banchero, Holgmren and Hardy, in some order, seems to be consensus for the time being, but there’s a lot of contrast across the boards after that.

There will be more big boards posted in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications. Also, if I’m missing any big boards that you feel belong alongside the ‘All-NBA level’ draft analysts I currently include, leave a comment or DM me on Twitter.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, August

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/2022-mock-draft-comp-aug/

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.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison (May)

(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.

[NBA Draft]: Comparison of Actual 2021 Draft vs. Final Mock Drafts

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/?p=2649

We spend a lot of time following all of the top NBA Draft analysts for months as they post and tweet about intel and update their big boards and mock drafts leading up to draft day. But once that day comes and goes, it’s easy to shift focus to how the rookies will fit on their new rosters, summer league, and the next draft, so I thought it might be nice to compile all of the final versions of these mock drafts and compare them to the actual 2021 draft picks for easy reference in the future.

After all the hard work this year, even the mock draft accuracy from the top shelf analysts was obliterated early in the 1st round with the trifecta of Toronto choosing Scottie Barnes over Jalen Suggs at #4, OKC going with Josh Giddey at #6 instead of James Bouknight or Jonathan Kuminga, and (the grand finale) the Spurs pick of Josh Primo at #12, who was projected to go in the 25-40 range. All of that, plus a Russell Westbrook trade to the Lakers made for a wild night of twists and turns that surpassed what we have come to expect.

Here is the actual 2021 NBA Draft from July 29th versus the final mock drafts from Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo, Bleacher Report’s Jonathan Wasserman, ESPN’s Mike Schmitz and Jonathan Givony, NBA Big Board’s Chad Ford, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, and The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie, and Tankathon.com:

[NBA Draft]: 2021 Mock Draft Comparison, July (updated 7/29)

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/?p=2430

7/29 update: Re-updated with new mocks drafts from Jonathan Givony at ESPN, Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer, Chad Ford at NBA Big Board, and Jonathan Wasserman at B/R! Updated this morning with new picks from Jonathan Givony at ESPN. Keep checking back for updates throughout the day. And as Mike Schmitz, said in his tweet below, LET’S GO!! Draft Day has finally arrived!

7/28 update: Updated again with new mock drafts from Jonathan Givony at ESPN and Jeremy Woo at SI. Added updated mock draft from Jonathan Wasserman at B/R, and 2nd round picks for Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer.

7/27 update: Added updated mock drafts from John Hollinger at The Athletic, Sam Vecenie at The Athletic, and Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer.

7/26 update: Re-updated, post Grizzlies-Pelicans trade, with updated mock drafts from ESPN, Chad Ford, and Jeremy Woo. Added updated mock drafts from Jeremy Woo at Sport Illustrated and Chad Ford from NBABigBoard.com.

7/25 update: added new mock drafts from Jonathan Givony at ESPN and Tankathon.

7/23 update: added Kevin O’Connor‘s updated 1st round mock draft from The Ringer‘s NBA Draft Guide.

7/21 update: added updated mock drafts from Sam Vecenie at The Athletic and Jonathan Wasserman at B/R.

7/20 update: added updated mock draft from Jeremy Woo at SI.

Late posting this one as work, family, and travel made it tough to keep up with all the updates being posted since the Draft Combine, withdrawal deadline, and with team workouts happening. Chad Ford posted his mock draft 3.0 on NBABigBoard.com (which is having a big $40 annual sale for subscribers btw–well worth it!), Jonathan Wasserman from Bleacher Report putting in lots of high-quality work as always, and our friends at Tankathon. Scottie Barnes is firmly in the top 5, and it sounds like James Bouknight has wowed team execs to solidify his spot in the top 10. Jared Butler got great news yesterday, as he was cleared by NBA health protocols, and Jaden Springer, now injury-free, has made quite an impression during team workouts. There will be many more mock drafts posted this week, so make sure to check back for updates leading up to the big day on July 29th–and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications. Also, if I’m missing a mock draft from any Draft Analysts you feel belong with these All-NBA level Draft Analysts I currently include, feel free to DM me on Twitter.

[NBA Draft]: 2021 Big Board Comparison, July (updated 7/22)

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/?p=2414

7/22 update: added Sam Vecenie‘s top 60 from his updated big board as part of his 2021 NBA Draft Guide for The Athletic.

7/19 update: added Kevin O’Connor‘s top 50 big board that was updated as part of The Ringer‘s NBA Draft Guide.

With the draft less than two weeks away and the NCAA withdrawal deadline passed, there have been quite a few recent updates to share, as intel has been flowing in from the Combine and team workouts. Lots of movement in the rankings = perfect timing for another Big Board comparison featuring John Hollinger from The Athletic who released his Top 70, a very interesting update to Jonathan Wasserman’s board from Bleacher Report with Cam Thomas moving up to #10, Chad Ford from NBABigBoard.com, Jeremy Woo from Sports Illustrated, and Draft Dummies, who have been doing a hell of a job on their LockedOn NBA Draft Podcast and Twitter. As big boards are posted or updated before July 29th, I’ll be adding them to this post, so make sure to check back and follow me on Twitter (@hoopsdistillery) to watch for updates.
