2015-16 CBB Draft Kit: Power Conference Mock Draft

This article is part of our Draft Kit series.

Around my house, it doesn't really feel like fantasy college basketball season until I hold my first mock draft. Last week, we accomplished just that when seven stalwart people joined up and made a go at the top 70 players in Tier 1 (i.e. the power conferences). We were playing under the auspices of the Big Chief league rules in which each team must start two guards, two forwards, a center, and a utility player.

The names of the mock participants have been withheld (although one RotoWire college basketball editor was present). I had the last pick of the first round and we snaked.

Round 1
1. Ben Simmons*, LSU, F
2. Kris Dunn, Providence, G
3. Georges Niang, Iowa State, F
4. Buddy Hield, Oklahoma, G
5. Melo Trimble, Maryland, G
6. Jaylen Brown*, California, F
7. Josh Hawkinson, Washington State, F
