Top 10 NBA draft prospects in college
10) Kelly Olynyk - Gonzaga - C
The junior for top-seeded Gonzaga is a legitimate seven footer and sits around the tenth pick on most draft boards. He scores 17.5 points per game, shoots an impressive 65% from the field, and is the best player on the nation's best team.
9) Alex Len - Maryland - C
Local fans are familiar with Len who shined for the up-and-down Terrapins this season. The 7'1", 255-pound Ukrainian is expected to enter the draft this summer after playing in the NIT with Maryland.
8) Victor Oladipo - Indiana - SG
Oladipo should top many awards lists this season after helping lead the Hoosiers to a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. He played at Dematha and is an athletic specimen, but may be too short to fit with the Wizards at small forward.
7) Otto Porter - Georgetown - SF
Porter has had a tremendous season, earning the Big East Player of the Year award and establishing himself as one of the best forward prospects in the country. He and the Hoyas earned a number two seed in the tournament.
6) Anthony Bennett - UNLV - SF/PF
Bennett is one of the best freshman on the country and could improve his stock in the tournament with the five-seed Rebels. At 6'8", 240 pounds he has size with elite leaping ability to complement. Because of his position, he may be one of the better fits with what the Wizards currently have going.
5) Cody Zeller - Indiana - C
Zeller has been atop draft boards all season with NBA size at 7'0", 240 pounds and has an impressive motor. He averaged 16.9 points and 8.2 rebounds per game on one of the nation's best teams and is likely a top five pick.
4) Marcus Smart - Oklahoma State - SG
Smart is expected to have a big tournament with five-seed Oklahoma State and some think he could be a combo guard at the professional level. With Wall and Beal already in store, it is unlikely the Wizards will be interested but he is a near lock for the top five.
3) Shabazz Muhammad - UCLA - SG/SF
Few players this draft project as well for the NBA as Muhammad who is already ready for the league physically. He can score and draws obvious comparisons to James Harden of the Rockets, but questions persist about his versatility and defensive instincts.
2) Ben McLemore - Kansas - SG
McLemore could very well become the top pick in the draft, depending on how he does in the tournament and the team who wins the lottery. He can shoot (50.3 FG%, 43.7 3PT%) and is an excellent dunker. He also, however, doesn't seem like a fit for the Wizards because of his size and position.
1) Nerlens Noel - Kentucky - C
Noel is raw offensively, but his athleticism and defensive prowess solidify him as a top pick. Unfortunately he won't be joining his Wildcats in the NIT because of a torn ACL, but either way some team will take him high and it could be the Wizards.
