Draft season is now in full session, as we have the official order of picks from the beloved NBA Draft Lottery. And with that, a full round of new mock drafts from the best of the best, including Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, Sam Vecenie/The Athletic and Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation, and Tankathon.

All of these picks were made prior to the NBA Draft Combine this week, so I would suspect that updated versions will be out this week or next, with guys like Terquavion Smith and Jalen Williams solidly in the first round after their impressive performances.

The biggest mover this month was Ousmane Dieng, who went from the 18 to 30 range up to the 12 to 17 range, as draft analysts suspect that he could be this year’s upside homerun swing for teams picking in the middle of the 1st round. Lots of movement in the 18 to 30 range this month too, as Duke starters have made their way back into the late 1st round, with both Wendell Moore and Trevor Keels perceived as high-floor guys. Leonard Miller, Jake LaRavia, and Bryce McGowens are on many mocks as well, while Jean Montero, Ismael Kamagate and Christian Koloko haved moved into the 30 to 40 range.

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.
