Mock Draft Friday

Highlighting the top five picks in our updated 2019 NBA mock draft

1. Zion Williamson Freshman 6’7″ 285 Power Forward

Williamson had another productive week, which has become the norm this season. He continues to struggle with his jumpshot but at the college level he is so dominating it has not mattered much up to this point. He stays at the top spot, and Knicks fans would love to end up with Williamson. 

Last 2 Games: 

26 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 4 blocks vs. Notre Dame

22 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 blocks vs. Georgia Tech

 

2. RJ Barrett Freshman 6’7″ 202 SG/SF

Barrett moves back into the #2 spot coming off of a week where he shot the ball better but still not efficient enough. At times he can be a ball stopper on offense which will need to be improved on going forward, but he continues to show that he should be in consideration for #2 as long as Zion holds onto the #1 position.

Last 2 Games:

17 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist vs. Notre Dame

24 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals vs. Georgia Tech

 

3. Ja Morant Soph. 6’3″ 170 Point Guard

Morant moves back into the #3 position after being #2 for the last week. He rolled his ankle a few games back, and has since played reasonably well. His jumper from deep has not been great the last 2 weeks, which should be the determining factor for who will win out as the player to be selected behind Zion. 

Last 2 Games:

22 points, 6 rebounds, 11 assists, 1 block vs. Jacksonville St.

24 points, 2 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals

 

4. Keldon Johnson Freshman

6’6″ 211

Shooting Guard

The Kentucky freshman remains at #4, after an efficient but quiet week. He only took a combined 15 shots from the field in the 2 games Kentucky played, but he did shoot 6-8 from behind the 3 point line. As long as he continues to show he can shoot efficiently he should remain in the top 5. 

Last 2 Games:

11 points, 2 assists vs. Vanderbilt

15 points, 10 assists vs. Kansas

 

5. Nickeil Alexander Walker Soph. 6’5″ 210 SG/PG

Alexander-Walker had a terrible game against Syracuse, but rebounded well against Miami. He has looked very efficient on offense and his 6 steals in the last game was impressive. He has played himself into top 5 consideration, and as long as he continues to show he can be an elite shooter at the next level he should not fall outside of the top 10. 

Last 2 Games: 

25 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 block, 6 steals vs. Miami

4 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal vs. Syracuse
