2018 NBA Mock Draft 1.0: Where are the mid-major guys going?

We have a couple of mid-major names in our first mock draft.

NCAA Basketball: Wyoming at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Draft Combine has come and gone, and we’ll start to learn which players are staying in the draft or returning to school in the coming days. The draft is just a month away, and players have until the early entry deadline on June 11 to make their choices.

Some players have already signed with agents, and will begin working out for teams as they try to work their way up the draft board. Mock drafts will come out daily, each one looking just slightly different than the one that preceded it or one from a competing site.

As always, most of the prospects come from Power 5 schools, but there is some mid-major talent in the draft that could work its way into the first round. Among those names are Chandler Hutchison, Mitchell Robinson (sorry WKU fans), and even a guy like Brandon McCoy could make a jump with good workouts.

Here’s the first edition of our mock draft. We’ll update it a few more times between now and draft night.
