It’s relatively easy to project the likelihood of being drafted with a season full of video and box scores to go off of. Predicting who NBA team will target in 2016 mere days after the 2015 draft took place, now that’s a challenge. 

A popular challenge, at that. 2016 NBA mock drafts have been popping up left and right the past few days. I figured preserving them in one place would give us a great baseline of what national experts are projecting for Marquette’s highest rated recruit in three decades, Henry Ellenson.

SB Nation – Ricky O’Donnell
Undrafted in 2016

SI.com – David Gardner
No. 16

“Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski made waves in October when he landed a commitment from Ellenson. Ellenson, a big man with elite offensive skills for his age, was the No. 4 player in his class, according to Rivals.com. He will instantly become the primary offensive threat for the Golden Eagles, who are only beginning the rebuilding phase.”

Draft Express 
No. 7

Bleacher Report – Jared Johnson
No. 8

Big Lead – Jason McIntire

ESPN – Chad Ford
No. 6

No. 9

“Skill-wise, he can shoot, go to the post and handle the ball. He finishes with both hands and has range beyond the 3-point line. Ellenson even has impressive footwork, to round it all out. If he can get into the proper physical shape and solidify his defense, Ellenson can be an All-Star at the next level.”

No. 8

No. 20

There isn’t much to analyze at this point, as it’s hard to fault people for holding opinions. We’ll just bookmark this post and use this as a barometer as the season progresses.
