With the NBA Playoffs in full swing and the deadline to declare for the draft looming, the focus for some teams and players shifts to the draft process.

The 7 foot 1 center took his blocking abilities to the Auburn Tigers where he made the Southeastern Conference All-Defense team, All-SEC team, and took home SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
Kessler played and started all 34 games, averaging 11.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 4.6 blocks per game. He had two double-digit block games, one where he finished with a triple-double of 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 blocks.
