Post-Combine NBA Mock Draft Compilation

Now that the NBA scouting combine has come and gone it's time to take a look at the next round of mock drafts. This time we have nine mock drafts to examine, placed side-by-side to determine which players are expected to land where.

The average projected draft order is tabulated and listed in the column RCS Average Selection; this does not take into account who a specific team is projected to pick, it is just a list of players in the order of their average draft position across the mock drafts used. The Common Pick column looks at the mode selection at each spot among all eight mock drafts. If no Common Pick is selected it means that at least three players were selected by an equal number of mock drafts at that spot. (click to enlarge)

No one jumped way up or fell off the board because of their combine performance, but there still was some movement. UNC's Tyler Zeller fell from 11th to 17th. Illinois' Myers Leonard is one of the few moving up, rising from 15th in the last round of mocks to 11th, but the biggest riser was Dion Waiters, who jumped from 17th to 10th.
