NBA mock draft board
To learn a little bit about that, let’s look at the team draft board as projected after the lottery. So Sixer Sense’s Christopher Kline authored a post lottery mock which spells out the reason for Fultz’s top billing
"“Fultz is in a class of his own this year, which is impressive given the sheer talent gracing the front end of this year’s rookie crop. He combines the physical tools (6-4 with a 6-9 wingspan) and the all-around repertoire needed to make an immediate impact at the next level, boasting markedly fewer weaknesses than your typical 19-year-old point guard. (Fultz) scores well at all three levels, while doing so both in volume and with a sense of control that seldom manifests in rookie players.(In fact,) He doesn’t get rattled easily and, for the most part, avoids unforced errors.”"
The NBA mock draft boards had a solid consensus at number one. Fultz was the guy. While some projected other prospect potential higher, or specific skills to a point guard higher, those prospects fell short in some categories.
Washington Basketball guard Markelle Fultz did not.
