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.

[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 Mock Draft Comparison, March (updated 4/9)

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 Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, Tankathon, ESPN-Draft Express/Jonathan Givony, Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, and Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation.… Continue reading [NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, March (updated 4/9)

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 2021)

(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.
