2015 NBA Draft: R.J. Hunter leads non-power conference prospects on expert lists

With all the teams we cover finished with their postseason runs, it is time to look ahead to the 2015 NBA Draft. Here is where our players rank according to the experts.

The 2015 NBA Draft is still more than two months away, but we have already heard from a number of underclassmen who will test the waters and try to jumpstart their pro careers.

We will be tracking our players as the draft approaches and providing profiles of those players who rank best on the prospect lists. Until that begins, here is a listing of the current top ranked players by ESPN's Chad Ford and the experts at DraftExpress. Note that not all of these players have declared for the draft, and the rankings may change as other players declare, or state their intention to return to school.

Right now, the most interesting analysis may be around where the top scorer in the NCAA, Tyler Harvey is rated. Chad Ford has him at No. 41 overall, and looking as if he is a second round selection. But over at Draft Express, the sophomore is only No. 84 overall which would mean he would be looking at bouncing around over the late summer and attending multiple camps just trying to catch on.

That is a big discrepancy and a very shaky position for a player who would only help himself with another year or two at school. According to his announcement, he is not signing with an agent, so he may back out and return to the Eagles prior to the draft.
