NBA Mock Draft: 2021 - 1st Edition

Updated: Apr 2

With the Men’s NCAA Tournament in full swing, we thought it would be appropriate to release our initial 2021 NBA Mock Draft.


Despite the frequent cancellation of games throughout the college season, our staff was still able to cover over 300 college games as well as 150 international games.


We will continue to scout and evaluate all draft-eligible players to provide the most accurate mocks possible.


Stay tuned for our updated mock drafts as we move closer to draft night.
