[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, April

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/mockdraftcomp-apr22/.

Post March Madness + NBA playoff time = early entry commitments and the start of pre-draft workouts. And with that, we have new 1st round picks to compare from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, and Rafael Barlowe/NBA Big Board.

The top four that has been in place for a few months has now become a top five with Keegan Murray going to Indiana at #5 across all of these mocks. Shaedon Sharpe who has now officially declared for the draft is firmly in the #6 to #8 range. Dyson Daniels seems to be making a move up some mocks, as does Malaki Branham, while draft analysts are cooling a bit on AJ Griffin and TyTy Washington. There’s lots of pick variance on Ousmane Dieng and Nikola Jovic, as everyone continues to watch tape and compare them to domestic prospects. It also feels like Patrick Baldwin and Jaden Hardy could quickly jump back into the #15-20 range, as they still both have very high (perceived) ceilings even after highly disappointing seasons.

I wanted to send a special shout out to Chad Ford, who retired this month and passed the reigns over to Rafael at NBA Big Board. Chad’s draft wisdom, enthusiasm, and intel will be sorely missed moving forward. He’s been a true inspiration to so many draft analysts and draft enthusiasts and we’ll always be indebted to all of his hard work.

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. And remember, if you ever want to look back to see what the picks looked like a month ago or 6 months ago, you can always find them here.

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.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, March (updated 4/9)

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/mockdraftcomp-march22/.

4/9 update: Added new picks from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express and Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today which I had missed on Twitter from late March. Kalbrosky has Malachi Branham at #10 and very interesting 20-30 range which includes Terquavion Smith at #21, while Givony has Ousmane Dieng at #18.

4/2 update: New picks added from Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, who has Mathurin jumping Griffin at #6 (a much safer pick for the Kings), Sochan at #9, and Dyson Daniels and Mark Williams moving into the lottery.

After two weeks of March Madness, the next round of mock drafts have been released and are ready to put head to head. I’ve added 1st round picks from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, Tankathon, Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, and Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation. Keegan Murray seems to have jumped Johnny Davis. Jeremy Sochan and Tari Eason are now lottery picks across the board, while TyTy Washington and Kendall Brown have moved down a bit. Also, Kennedy Chandler has reappeared as a consensus first round pick after Tennessee’s tourney run, and Mark Williams has jumped Walker Kessler on some mocks, thanks to his impressive play for Duke.

In case you missed previous #mockdraftcomp’s, 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. The results are becoming even more interesting as we compare month over month and see that there is agreement forming across draft analysts on the top 10 picks.

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.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, February (updated 3/7)

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-february/.

3/7 update: Fresh update with pick released in the last week from Tankathon.com and Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report. Shaedon Sharpe included in both of these and Malaki Branham entering the 1st round conversation.

2/24 update: New picks added from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express. EJ Liddell and Ousmane Dieng are both in his top 20, while Jeremy Sochan and Patrick Baldwin are in the 25-30 range.

With March Madness on the horizon, some very interesting mock drafts were released last week from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, and Chad Ford/NBA Big Board, and not surprisingly, there’s been a lot of movement. While Vecenie is refraining from adding Shaedon Sharpe until he confirms he’ll enter the draft, the others have him going in the 5-7 range. AJ Griffin has moved up to a consensus top 6 pick, TyTy Washington, a consensus top 10 pick, and Walker Kessler has solidified his position in the first round.

Also notable, are the changes tides with Duke’s prospects over the last month: Mark Williams has moved up into the mid-to-late first range, while his fellow teammates Wendell Moore and Trevor Keels are not even picked to go in the 1st round on two of these three mock drafts. Same goes for Kennedy Chandler, who analysts have cooled on quite on a bit.

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.

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.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, January (updated 1/30)

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/mock-draft-comp-jan22/

January 30 update: Fresh 1st round mock draft from Jonathan Givony/ESPN and top 15 picks from Chad Ford/NBA Big Board–both of which include Shaedon Sharpe.

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. 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.

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.

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, November (updated 12/22)

(image via hammerandrails.com)

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. 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.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Big Board Comparison, September (2021)

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.
