NBA Mock Draft 2015 - Consensus Mock 3.0 (Post Tournament Updates)

New, comments

March Madness has come and gone, and now we have a new updated Mock Draft to argue over!

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

So those Dukies won again, huh? Anyway, March Madness 2015 was fun as usual, but for me the real deal is the NBA Draft. As a result here's the new Consensus NBA Mock Draft after the main players all updated their big boards. As it stands now my big board is 205 players, and I used 19 different scout-level or better mock drafts. (n=956 draft rankings) For more info on all of this read the end notes. Anyway, let's get to the rankings.

At the end of the day, the Kentucky guys didn't really get hurt for losing in the Final Four, but some Duke guys and a whole bunch of Wisconsin guys get a bump. Some of the guys who are on 2 or fewer mock drafts could make a jump in the next little while, and in individual workouts: Jarrell Martin, Travis Trice, and the like.

Of the 19 mocks used, a majority of them were updated after the final buzzer last night, but some have not yet done so. A new updated consensus draft will drop after that. The drafts used were, duh, ESPN, Draft Express, NBADraft.net, CBS (Sam Vecenie, Gary Parrish, Zach Harper), The Sporting News, Sports Illustrated, HoopsHype, Basketball Insiders (Steve Kyler, Yannis Koutroupis), Bleacher Report, SB Nation (Ricky O'Donnell, Kevin O'Connor), FanSided, The Lottery Mafia, MyNBADraft.com, and Walter Football. If you have a mock draft you would like included, hit me up.
