NBA Mock Draft 7.2: Final Projections For All 60 Picks

The general expectation around the league is Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green and Evan Mobley will be the first players off the board. Here is how the rest of the draft might play out.
Author:

The 2021 NBA draft is upon us and beginning to crystalize, with teams making final preparations for Thursday’s event. And while there’s a sense of which players will come off the board first, the prospect of trades in the lottery has continued to swirl. There’s still a great deal of intrigue and anticipation around the NBA going into draft night, and all the latest intel on all 30 first-round picks can be found here.

As always, this mock attempts to project what the draft might look like on a given day, and is based primarily off my own intel and conversations with a range of executives, scouts and others around the NBA. SI’s Top 80 draft board can be found here. Expect another update or two in the next few hours as things develop.

1. Pistons: Cade Cunningham, G, Oklahoma State

Height: 6' 8" | Weight: 220 | Age: 19 | Freshman

Adrian Wojnarowski’s report Thursday afternoon confirmed the vast expectation that the Pistons will indeed select Cunningham at No. 1 tonight. There has never been much reason to expect the contrary, and barring an unexpected trade, Cunningham will land in Detroit.

As previously reported here, this was not an easy decision process for the Pistons. There was real disagreement within the Pistons’ braintrust surrounding which player to select, league sources say. Detroit always viewed the top pick as a three-player conversation that included Evan Mobley and Jalen Green. It’s unclear which of Mobley and Green had more traction internally, but the strong feeling among rival teams was that Detroit went through a legitimate, prolonged decision process.

Hypothetically, only two teams can draw up a Hail Mary to try and tempt the Pistons: the Rockets and Thunder. But Houston is thought to be content to draft Jalen Green at No. 2. And it’s fair to say that the entire NBA is suspicious of Oklahoma City right now, although it’s considered more feasible that they make a play for Cleveland’s pick at No. 3. There’s not much time left for a deal to materialize, but it’s not totally out of the question.

Regardless, Cunningham has won at every stop, and with a malleable, intelligent approach to scoring and playmaking, he’ll become the No. 1 pick for good reason.

2. Rockets: Jalen Green, SG, G League Ignite

Height: 6' 5" | Weight: 185 | Age: 19 | Freshman

No surprises here: As previously reported here, league sources view Green as an essential lock to Houston at No. 2. He worked out for the Rockets in the days prior to the draft, and a mutual comfort level has formed between the two sides. Houston explored trading the pick, but settled on Green, with the matchmaking process aided by the fact he was the only projected top pick to work out for the Rockets. Another notable tidbit: Sources say Green has built a friendship with Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr., dating back to their time in the G League bubble, which should inspire at least some level of confidence that their similar styles of play can coexist. Green has major upside as a scorer, and has been viewed as the Rockets’ preferred choice dating back to lottery night. Houston will take a big swing on him here.

3. Cavaliers: Evan Mobley, F/C, USC

Height: 7' 0" | Weight: 215 | Age: 20 | Freshman

The Cavs fielded offers from multiple teams for this pick, but as of Thursday afternoon, rival teams increasingly expected Cleveland to stand pat and draft Mobley. The Thunder are believed to have been the most serious suitor, but the Cavs have maintained a high asking price for the selection. They are prepared to draft Mobley on Thursday night.

There are many around the league who view Mobley as a No. 1 pick-worthy talent. Mobley projects as a low-maintenance, high-impact performer and potential franchise centerpiece, and skilled, two-way bigs of his ilk don’t come around often. He’s not a perfect fit with restricted free agent center Jarrett Allen, whom the Cavs appear invested in long-term, but there’s some belief they can play together, at least for now. The prospect of drafting Mobley raises the question of whether Cleveland can realistically carry Allen, Kevin Love and Larry Nance on the team next season.

Gonzaga's Jalen Suggs reacts after his buzzer beater

4. Raptors: Jalen Suggs, G, Gonzaga

Height: 6' 4" | Weight: 205 | Age: 20 | Freshman

The Raptors appear to hold the keys to the lottery, with the dust having mostly settled around the first three picks. It’s still unclear exactly what Toronto will do here, with Suggs and Scottie Barnes viewed as the likely options if they stay here. League sources say multiple teams have called about trading for the pick, with Suggs and Barnes as the likely targets.

Sources say Suggs had an underwhelming workout in Toronto last week, a piece of information that has circulated around the league and contributed to some of the external second-guessing around the selection. But Suggs is still viewed by most as the best prospect on the board at No. 4, and an excellent fit in Toronto.

The Raptors may not overcomplicate this, although the possibility of a trade remains. Sources say Toronto has continued listening to offers here. They are known to be interested in remaking the roster this summer, and their front office is generally opportunistic. They have primarily been linked to Jonathan Kuminga and James Bouknight in trade-back scenarios.

5. Magic: Scottie Barnes, F, Florida State

Height: 6' 8" | Weight: 225 | Age: 19 | Freshman

Unless Barnes comes off the board at No. 4 to Toronto or another team that trades up, it’s not an exaggeration to say that pretty much the entire NBA thinks the Magic will take him here. The vibe from rival teams has colored this selection as something of a poorly kept secret at this point. While Barnes doesn’t boast the type of scoring ability traditionally found in top-five selections, his range of impressive intangibles, elite passing skills and defensive acumen have built a convincing case. He would be a strong match for the Magic, possessing the length and versatility that fits their traditional draft ethos, and a galvanizing personality that could help stabilize their young locker room.

6. Thunder: James Bouknight, SG, UConn

Height: 6' 5" | Weight: 190 | Age: 20 | Sophomore

Rival teams have been watching the Thunder with intense suspicion, the hunch being Oklahoma City may be able to pull off a trade into the top four. Nobody knows exactly what Sam Presti wants to do, but he has enough future picks to get wherever he wants in the draft, depending on how badly he wants to get there. It’s widely thought that the Thunder made plays for the No. 1 and No. 3 picks, but as of Thursday afternoon, those scenarios felt less likely.

Rival teams generally agree that Bouknight and Jonathan Kuminga are the two players most likely in the mix for No. 6 if the Thunder stand pat. Bouknight gets the nod in this scenario, as arguably the draft’s most polished scorer and a potential high-impact addition. He’s shown real imagination finishing in the paint and creating shots, and teams expect he’ll be more than adequate as a jump shooter. In addition to the Thunder, he’s believed to be strongly in play for the Warriors if he falls to No. 7.

7. Warriors (from Timberwolves): Jonathan Kuminga, F, G League Ignite

Height: 6' 8" | Weight: 220 | Age: 18

Sources say the Warriors have been extremely active in the lead-up to the draft, exploring a range of options using both their picks. There’s been a lot of chatter about what the Warriors will do, with all four of Kuminga, James Bouknight, Josh Giddey and Franz Wagner viewed as real options if they pick here. It’s also possible Golden State trades back, with Memphis tipped as a potential trade partner coming up from No. 10. In this scenario, the Warriors take the biggest upside swing and walk away with Kuminga, targeting a more NBA-ready player with their second lottery pick.

Kuminga remains one of the higher-upside talents in the class, with elite athletic tools and coordination at his size, but concerns over his ball-dominant style of play, jump shot and NBA readiness have contributed to the shift in perception. League sources say Kuminga has struggled to gain traction during the predraft process, and rival teams continue to speculate how far he might slip—but a fall out of the top ten would still be a surprise.

8. Magic (from Bulls): Franz Wagner, SF, Michigan

Height: 6' 9" | Weight: 220 | Age: 19 | Sophomore

This Orlando pick has also been a bit tricky to project, given that there’s not necessarily a natural fit for their roster among the prospects available. Orlando can theoretically pick from the wings available here, with Wagner, Moses Moody and Ziaire Williams among those linked. If Jonathan Kuminga were to fall here, rival teams believe the Magic could opt to pass. Orlando could potentially move back off this pick for the right offer, but the asking price is thought to be quite high.

Wagner has had a bit of a mysterious predraft process, as he opted out of the combine and has conducted workouts quietly, but is expected to come off the board in the top 10. The word is that he did work out for the Magic. His well-rounded game has made him a popular commodity, with a mature approach on offense that isn’t predicated on volume shooting to add value. He’s an excellent team defender with the size to match up on a range of personnel. He’d be a nice match here as the Magic reimagine their roster, capable of playing either forward spot and fitting into a wide range of lineups.

9. Kings: Alperen Sengün, F/C, Besiktas (Turkey)

Height: 6' 10" | Weight: 240 | Age: 19 | Freshman

Over the past several days, the Kings have been constantly linked to Sengün, whose impressive production in Turkey will be particularly appealing to their analytics-driven front office, with his combo of youth and counting stats likely to project well. Sacramento has also frequently been tied to Franz Wagner but is viewed as willing to think outside the box a bit, and Wagner could be off the board before this. The Kings badly need interior help of any kind, with the jury still out on Marvin Bagley and Richaun Holmes headed for free agency.

The question is how much a post-centric prospect like Sengün is worth in today’s NBA: He’s already a statistical outlier, but only the most dominant interior players justifiably command high-end usage. Concerns about his ability to protect the basket persist. But with terrific finishing skills and passing vision, Sengün is a lottery-level talent, though not a fit for every team’s style of play. 

10. Grizzlies: Josh Giddey, G, Adelaide 36ers (Australia)

Height: 6' 8" | Weight: 205 | Age: 18

The Grizzlies acquired this pick from the Pelicans on Monday in a still-pending trade that saw them take on the unwanted contracts of Eric Bledsoe and Steven Adams, in order to move up from No. 17. League sources say Memphis continues to try and trade higher, and is rumored to be angling for Golden State’s pick at No. 7. The two players most frequently linked to Memphis are Josh Giddey and Wagner—both of whom could be trade-up targets—but in this scenario, Giddey makes it down the board.

Giddey would give the Grizzlies another talented playmaker to take pressure off Ja Morant. He’s one of the draft’s best passers and has improved his jumper to a workable level over the past year. With exceptional feel for the game and a productive year in Australia under his belt, Giddey is extremely advanced for a teenager, and doesn’t turn 19 until October. His strengths feel translatable into a useful bench role at worst, with his height and smarts enabling him to play all over the floor. He could go as high as No. 7 to Golden State.

11. Hornets: Kai Jones, F/C, Texas

Height: 6' 11" | Weight: 220 | Age: 20 | Sophomore

The word going around the league as of Thursday afternoon was that the Hornets were likely to keep the No. 11 pick, after weighing the possibility of a trade back. Per sources, Jones worked out twice for the Hornets, who have an obvious need for a young big and have frequently been connected as their choice here.

Jones’s potential to knock down jumpers, finish lobs and protect the paint—coupled with unusual athletic gifts and skill flashes—make him one of the higher-upside options on the board in this part of the lottery. He was never an especially consistent producer at Texas, and will still be very much a project for whoever drafts him. The Hornets can give him time to figure things out and experiment, and his defensive versatility should make him pretty appealing given their circumstances.

12. Spurs: Moses Moody, SG, Arkansas

Height: 6' 6" | Weight: 205 | Age: 19 | Freshman

As previously reported here, the Spurs have angled to move up in the draft and into the top 10. It’s worth noting they have historically been content to stand pat on draft night. The Spurs have spent the past few years developing their young perimeter players, and Keldon Johnson in particular looks like a keeper, but it’s been rumored that they aren’t necessarily attached at the hip to players like Dejounte Murray and Lonnie Walker. In this scenario they go best-available and select Moody, whose range begins at No. 8 and ends at No. 15 or so.

Moody is a potentially high-level shooter, and profiles well as a no-frills 3-and-D wing. His lack of explosiveness and creativity off the dribble ties his upside primarily to his jumper, and his youth makes him a better fit for teams that can be patient. But he has a number of fans around the league, and his stock seems to have solidified in the lottery.

13. Pacers: Davion Mitchell, G, Baylor

Height: 6' 1" | Weight: 205 | Age: 22 | Junior

Indiana’s pick at No. 13 has come into focus as a trade target for multiple teams, sources say, but the Pacers have yet to budge. Indiana is looking to improve, not rebuild, and have mostly been linked to experienced prospects: Kispert, Davion Mitchell and Chris Duarte. Unless the Warriors select Mitchell before this, he should be available to them at No. 13, and would be a nice fit as an immediate guard option next to Malcolm Brogdon as they push for the playoffs.

Teams have been a bit cooler on Mitchell than the public discourse for much of the season, with his age, size, and limited résumé as a shooter pushing him down into this part of the draft. But he’s been a late bloomer, and his intangibles, work ethic, defensive toughness, and developing offensive game are still highly enticing, and would fit well here in a situation where he’s not tasked with too much playmaking responsibility right away.

14. Warriors: Chris Duarte, SG, Oregon

Height: 6' 6" | Weight: 190 | Age: 24 | Senior

Presuming the Warriors take a younger player at No. 7, logic suggests they look for more immediate rotation help at No. 14, with Davion Mitchell and Duarte having surfaced as prime candidates. Mitchell is thought to have strong support within the Warriors’ coaching staff, but with him off the board here, Duarte is the choice. Duarte has been one of the hot names on the morning of the draft, and is likely to come off the board in the 13-15 range. Many around the NBA believe Washington may be Duarte’s floor. He’s been tipped as a trade-up target for teams, with the Knicks most frequently mentioned as a suitor.

Duarte is one of the oldest players in the draft, but his reliability, shooting, and well-rounded game are big draws. He doesn’t profile as a star, but he’d give Golden State another tall wing option right away.

15. Wizards: Corey Kispert, SF, Gonzaga

Height: 6' 7" | Weight: 220 | Age: 22 | Senior

The Wizards and Lakers are reportedly nearing a trade that sends Russell Westbrook to Los Angeles in exchange for a package that includes Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

With Westbrook on the move and Bradley Beal’s situation feeling like less of an urgent matter in recent days, rival teams expect Washington to look for immediate help here, with whichever player falls from the trio of Kispert, Duarte and Davion Mitchell a distinct possibility. Kispert is one of the draft’s elite shooters, with enough size and complementary skills to hold his own, and a natural replacement for free agent Doug McDermott. While not a creative player nor an upside pick, he’s viewed as a strong plug-and play fit. His range starts with Charlotte at No. 11, and runs into the teens.

16. Thunder (from Celtics): Ziaire Williams, SF, Stanford

Height: 6' 9" | Weight: 185 | Age: 19 | Freshman

It remains unclear whether the Thunder will use these picks in the teens, one or both of which could create a path to acquiring a second lottery pick. Oklahoma City will have attractive options if they decide to stay put. Williams has been a tricky player to place throughout the process, with interest as high as Orlando at No. 8 and further down in the lottery. He feels like more of a trade-back candidate for someone in this range.

Williams helped himself in the predraft process by showcasing his shooting and ball skills in workouts, and measured well at the combine, renewing his perception as an upside pick. His combination of positional height, skill level, and shooting ability has always been tantalizing for scouts, but questions surrounding his injury history and lack of consistency dating back to high school persist. As a skilled wing with legit size, he remains appealing from a development perspective if a team can inherit the risk.

17. Pelicans: Trey Murphy, F, Virginia

Height: 6' 9" | Weight: 205 | Age: 21 | Junior

The Pelicans will acquire this pick from the Grizzlies in a multiplayer deal designed to free up major salary cap flexibility. Rival teams believe New Orleans is open to trading this pick and moving back again, with interest in improving their rotation and pushing for the playoffs. Staying on this pick keeps the Pelicans in a desirable range to add another young piece to their supporting cast. Murphy’s size and consistent jumper make him a strong fit. Murphy isn’t a great ballhandler or creative passer, but has a good sense of his own strengths and weaknesses and shouldn’t be a major liability. There’s upside if his athletic ability plays up higher than expected on defense.

18. Thunder (from Heat): Day’Ron Sharpe, C, North Carolina

Height: 6' 11" | Weight: 265 | Age: 19 | Freshman

SI Recommends

There’s been increasing chatter around the league that Sharpe may sneak into the Top 20, following a strong predraft process that could culminate with him coming off the board earlier than many expected. He’s been tipped as a possible trade-back target for late-lottery teams, and also connected to the Thunder, who could use a developmental big.

Sharpe has largely been terrific on the workout circuit, having improved his conditioning, shot the ball surprisingly well, and impressed in interviews. He has the makings of a reliable role player in the long run, with his ceiling tied to his offensive development and potential as a passer. While not supremely athletic or skilled as a scorer, Sharpe is a highly competitive, high-effort rebounder with more upside than most traditional centers in his mold. 

19. Knicks: Isaiah Jackson, C, Kentucky

Height: 6' 10" | Weight: 205 | Age: 19 | Freshman

As previously reported, the Knicks have made attempts to trade as high as the late lottery, according to league sources, but have thus far been rebuffed. Rival teams believe New York’s target is Chris Duarte, which would require a move into the 13-15 range. While they can offer picks 19, 21, and 32 to get where they want, it’s unclear whether the Knicks are willing to put all three selections on the table to make that happen, or whether they can even get that high.

There has been no team and prospect more heavily linked behind the scenes during this draft cycle than Jackson and the Knicks. The Kentucky product has deep ties to the organization, and rumors of mutual interest between them have been persistent. He was thought to be a possible trade-up target for New York, but it’s begun to look more likely he’ll be on the board by the time the Knicks select. While Jackson is inarguably raw and not particularly skilled, he’s an exceptional athlete, and flashed enough intriguing things during the season to solidify first-round interest. The hope is that he'll emerge as a rim-running center who protects the basket, but he’s not particularly reliable yet. He’s an acquired taste for some scouts, who question his offensive acumen and feel, but he’d be a depth piece with upside here, and could eventually supplant Mitchell Robinson.

20. Hawks: Joshua Primo, SG, Alabama

Height: 6' 5" | Weight: 190 | Age: 18 | Freshman

As of Thursday afternoon, rival teams say the Hawks are exploring all options in the first round. Sources say Atlanta has made Cam Reddish available, and the Hawks are believed to be open to trading either up or down depending on the deal. Primo has been mentioned as an option if they stay put, and would inject some youth into their guard corps.

After a strong showing at the combine and an impressive pre-draft process behind closed doors, Primo now looks like a lock to land somewhere in the first round, with his range beginning in the late teens and running down into the 20s. He’s demonstrated a more diverse offensive game than he showed in a spot-up role at Alabama, with combo guard skills and an impressive level of poise and focus. The fact he’s the youngest draft-eligible prospect adds a layer of appeal as a long-term project, and he’s in the mix for teams that can afford to be patient. Primo has starter-level upside in the long run.

21. Knicks (from Mavericks): Keon Johnson, SG, Tennessee

Height: 6' 5" | Weight: 185 | Age: 19 | Freshman

League sources say concern over Johnson’s medical has been a contributing factor to a potential fall in the draft. He finds a soft landing spot here with New York as a value pick. He’s one of the best athletes in the draft, but underwhelming measurements at the combine and concerns about his jumper and ball skills have also hurt his stock a bit. Johnson needs to refine his offensive game, but has better feel than a typical project wing, and a tough, defensive-oriented mindset that could expedite his pathway to useful minutes. He’d be a nice project for the Knicks if he slips.

22. Lakers: Usman Garuba, F/C, Real Madrid (Spain)

Height: 6' 8" | Weight: 230 | Age: 19

After several days of rumors that the Lakers would trade this pick, this pick could be on the move to the Wizards in a pending Russell Westbrook trade, with the two teams reportedly debating its inclusion. Either team looks like a possible suitor for Garuba here. Teams are all over the board on the Spanish forward, who has one of the most intriguing defensive profiles in the draft, but is lagging behind in terms of ball skills at this point, leading to questions over what his eventual role might be on the offensive end of the floor. He’s experienced and legitimately versatile on defense, and a worthy flier, but will need to be deployed creatively. His range starts around No. 18 and runs into the 20s, where he could be a strong value pick.

23. Rockets (from Blazers): BJ Boston, SG, Kentucky

Height: 6' 7" | Weight: 185 | Age: 19 | Freshman

The sense right now is that the Rockets intend to keep one of their two picks in the 20s and will likely trade the other. There are murmurs around the NBA that Boston has worked his way back into the first round after a disappointing year at Kentucky. While it’s hard to make a convincing statistical case for him in the first round, he had considerable status as a high school prospect and was tipped as a lottery-level talent coming into the season. Taking him here is a big bet on him bouncing back and realizing his potential as a shot-creating wing. Houston has traditionally prioritized talent and upside in the draft over all else.

24. Rockets (from Bucks): Jalen Johnson, F, Duke

Height: 6' 9" | Weight: 220 | Age: 19 | Freshman

This would be something of a fall for Johnson, who entered the year projected as a lottery pick, but has gained little traction over the course of the predraft process and team interviews. He’s a very intriguing upside pick if he slides, as it’s difficult to find players with his blend of size, ball skills, and passing vision. Johnson has his warts, particularly his inconsistent jumper, but any slide in the draft will primarily be indicative of how teams chose to weight the background intel from his high school and college careers. His body of work at Duke was brief, limited and inconsistent. Johnson remains an appealing reclamation project, with a pretty clear pathway to an NBA role if things break correctly, but it’s been tough to find scouts who feel confident in him reaching his potential.

25. Clippers: Bones Hyland, SG, VCU

Height: 6' 3" | Weight: 165 | Age: 20 | Sophomore

The Clippers have primarily been linked to guards at this spot, but have needs across the board, and have consistently valued toughness and feel in their role players. One of the winners of the pre-draft process, Hyland appears likely to come off the board in the 18-25 range. He gathered steam with a terrific showing at the draft combine and impressed with his shooting skills, putting him in play higher than this. While he’s quite slender for an NBA two-guard, his ability to make tough shots is hard to find, and has helped separate him from the large pack of guards in the late first round. While his game is not the most diverse, Hyland is viewed as a potentially useful bench scorer, and teams value his ability to create his own shot.

26. Nuggets: Cameron Thomas, SG, LSU

Height: 6' 4" | Weight: 210 | Age: 19 | Freshman

Denver has traditionally been content to grab whoever falls to them in the 20s, and should be in position to do that here, with a range of quality guards likely available. This is a bit of a fall for Thomas, who earned a green room invite but may be trending out of the top 20.

Thomas’s inflexible, shoot-first approach has made him a divisive player in front offices, but he’s one of the more consistent and accomplished scorers in the draft. The questions here revolve around his playstyle, and his general disinterest in defense and sharing the ball. But there’s some thought that he might fit nicely as an extra scorer on a team with an established pecking order. It will fall on Thomas to become a more malleable player in the long run, but his production is hard to knock, and he’ll have easier shots coming his way playing off the ball on a good team, in theory.

27. Nets: Miles McBride, PG, West Virginia

Height: 6' 2" | Weight: 200 | Age: 20 | Sophomore

McBride has been thought by rival teams to be in the mix for the Nets here, and has earned fans around the league with his toughness, on-ball defense and shot-making skills. It looks like he’ll come off the board in the 25-32 range. McBride has off-the-charts length and a reliable pull-up jumper that gives him a little more to offer than your typical defensive-minded college guard. Optimistic scouts think he has the chops to anchor bench units, and McBride’s poised, no-frills game would fit in Brooklyn.

28. 76ers: J.T. Thor, PF, Auburn

Height: 6' 9" | Weight: 205 | Age: 18 | Freshman

Thor has intrigued teams in workouts with his exceptional length and potential to shoot the ball reliably, and has an interesting profile as a stretch big. He’d be an interesting target in this part of the draft for a team willing to take on a project, without much history of consistent production, but enough of a skill set to have real appeal in the 20s.

Daryl Morey has never been particularly attached to his draft picks, and history suggests the Sixers will entertain trade offers here, making it an interesting spot for another team to grab a player who unexpectedly slips to the back of the first round.

29. Nets (from Suns): Kessler Edwards, F, Pepperdine

Height: 6' 8" | Weight: 200 | Age: 21 | Junior

Trade update: The Nets dealt Landry Shamet, who we earlier tabbed as a trade candidate in this space, to the Suns in a deal that brought back the No. 29 pick. Brooklyn could still look to flip one or both of these picks, but there’s also a case to be made that they can reload with younger role players here. There’s been chatter in recent days that Edwards could sneak into the back end of the first round, and was thought to be in play as high as the 28-30 range. While not highly creative or physical, his defensive potential and shooting ability make him a potentially valuable bench option.

30. Jazz: Quentin Grimes, SG, Houston

Height: 6' 5" | Weight: 210 | Age: 21 | Junior

The Jazz are reportedly looking to move off salary, and could attach this pick to an unwanted contract in a trade that would further that pursuit. If they stay put, they could target an NBA-ready player like Grimes, who was one of the biggest winners at the combine and has played his way into late first-round consideration. His well-rounded perimeter game and strong intangibles have earmarked him as a potential role player. He reinvented himself at Houston as a ball-moving, complementary jump shooter, and plays with a level of maturity and confidence that should endear him to playoff teams in this part of the draft.
