NEW YORK -- Saddle up, everyone. This is going to be a wildly unpredictable draft.
Though reports about this crop's weakness are premature -- it is impossible to know just how good or bad a draft is until years after it's completed -- two things are clear: There is no can't-miss superstar at the top (Kansas' Ben McLemore has the most potential while Kentucky's Nerlens Noel could become a Ben Wallace-like defensive force) and there are few certainties anywhere. Teams' draft boards will be all over the place, and lottery talent, at least in the minds of some general managers, will likely slip into the 20s.
As teams gear up for group workouts, individual workouts and countless hours of film study ahead of the June 27 draft, here's SI.com's Mock Draft 1.0.
