Seven ACC Players In First Round of NBA Mock Drafts


The NBA Draft will be held one week from now, and up to a dozen ACC players could hear their names called. The biggest name to watch is Duke’s Jabari Parker, who is a serious candidate for the No. 1 overall selection after it was reported on Thursday that Kansas center Joel Embiid sustained a stress fracture in his foot.

Up to seven ACC players are expecting to go off the board in the first round. Below is where four different mock drafts have ACC players going.
