Tonight we’ll all be watching to see which team ‘wins’ the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery! For months experts have been touting the 2014 Draft Class as one of the most talented in recent years and teams will be waiting with baited breath, hoping to claim the most talented players.

Check out our first and second mock draft:

So what’s changed since our last mock draft? Well, for starters the combine has officially wrapped in Chicago, giving scouts a little more insight into possible later round steals, and solidifying what they already knew about the top prospects in the 2014 NBA Draft. Also, we’re on the heels of knowing which teams will be selecting at which position.

Seems like the perfect time for a little mock 2014 NBA Draft update, right?

Who We Love

To put things in perspective I’ve compiled the previous two Mock Drafts and put them side by side with Mock Draft III.

As you can see things really shook up from I to II, but in III it’s just the top six that see some shuffling. I still believe Vonleh, Smart, Ennis and McDermott are top 10 picks, and with their performances in the combine, depending on which team picks where, they may go even higher.

Wiggins has shot to the top of my list after jumping spot after spot. Speaking of jumping, while this prospective #1 pick was absent in Chicago, P3 (Peak Performance Project) instagrammed this picture:

Other impressive numbers for the 2014 NBA combine include Vonleh and Gordon’s 12 feet maximum vertical leaps! Vonleh also impressed with his physical presence including a 7’4.25” wingspan, 9 foot standing reach, and almost foot long hands (11.75”). Gordon impressed by having the fastest shuttle time out of all positions (2.76 seconds) and had the best max vertical among power forwards.
