Wiggins tops ESPN's first 2014 mock draft
It's only September and zero games have been played, but it's never too early for a mock draft. ESPN's Chad Ford released his first mock-up for the 2014 NBA Draft on Monday, and there was no surprise in the top spot.
1. Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
2. Julius Randle, Kentucky
3. Marcus Smart, Oklahoma St.
4. Dante Exum, Australia
5. Jabari Parker, Duke
While these rankings are highly subject to change, they do serve as a litmus as to which NCAA players will have the most NBA eyes on them this year.
Kentucky and Kansas both have two players projected in the top-10, making it a pretty safe bet those watching on national networks will get a heavy dose of Wiggins, Randle, Andrew Harrison and Joel Embiid. The mock draft is heavy on SEC and Big-12 players in general, perhaps shifting some of the mainstream focus away from the ACC and Big East.
