There’s still plenty of time for these prospects to change, but it appears as if all NBA Draft experts are fully impressed by at least these top three at each position. For teams it’s equally as important to get a sense of who will be an overall well-rounded player as well as, in their dedicated positions.

If you are stacked at one position for example, your team may want to overlook a particular player or considering setting up a trade scenario to get someone who will fill a need on your team.

If the 2013 NBA Draft was any indication, standings and pre-Draft analysis don’t always mean that someone is going in the Top 10 or even the first round. The 2014 NBA Draft prove to be interesting because with such a talented class, it’s hard to truly say who will go when and where!
