With the NBA draft picture getting a little clearer following the lottery on Tuesday night, it's time to take another look at some mock drafts.
As expected, Nerlens Noel remains at the top of the board in Chris Mannix's draft for SportsIllustrated.com, going to the Cavaliers. But it's what happening on the other end of the first round that might be more interesting.
Archie Goodwin, despite a putrid performance at the NBA combine, remains in the first round. Mannix has Goodwin going 29th overall to Oklahoma City, where he could contribute as a scorer off the bench or spend a couple years developing while the Thunder continue to compete for the top of the Western Conference.
