NBA Draft: DP’s Prospect Rankings

James Snook / USA TODAY Sports

#1 Chet Holmgren

Gonzaga | 7-0 | PF/C

Holmgren is the first of likely many in a long line of unicorn-like prospects, packing a Sentinel-like punch into a 7-foot frame. He has a natural feel for both handling and passing the ball and, for his size, remarkable touch from distance. Defensively, he’s one of the better shot blockers we’ve seen lately and should eventually be able to root professional units.

Holmgren has a razor-thin build and may not have the established offensive post presence that his predecessors had. But overall, he’s just too talented to pass it on to anyone.
