2023 NBA Mock Draft - 3rd Edition

With the NCAA Tournament tipping off on March 16, 2023, we're not going to bore you with a lot of fluff to intro our latest installment of our Mock Draft, instead we're just going to jump right in.


We here at Between The Lines Sports have continued to evaluate and investigate the top prospects from around the world. Our staff is going above and beyond to give you some of the best insights and potential draft predictions in the third installment of our 2023 NBA Mock Draft.


Dive into our latest Mock Draft and share your thoughts in the comment section.


Note: The projected draft order is based on the Tankathon projections as of Monday, March 14, 2023. We are also aware that this Draft will only consist of 58 picks due to infractions by a couple of teams, which we believe it is unfair for two prospects to lose out on their dream of being drafted, so they will be listed on our Mock throughout the process.
