    Noticed there hasn't been a general draft thread yet which I found weird. Seen a bunch of one offs, but didn't see a generic thread yet, so I guess I'll make one? If I missed the thread, feel free to merge or do whatever with this.

    Anyway, we've been doing daily content over on Blazers Uprise, and were diving deep into this years draft. We'll be doing a lottery stream, a draft stream, draft profiles on players in Portlands range, as well as mock drafts and other draft related videos. Here are my YouTube playlists for each:

    - Draft Profiles
    - Mock Drafts
    - All Off-Season Content

    Here are some of the draft resources I've been using. Feel free to add any of yours:

    Fanspo.com - Great for creating your own big boards and mock drafts!

    Hoop Intellect (YT) - My favorite YouTube channel for scouting videos, big boards, and mock drafts.

    Adam Spinella (YT) - Another YouTube channel with a wider repertoire of scouting videos.

    Draft Rankings Spreadsheet - I know somebody who put together this spreadsheet compiling prospect rankings. Don't know how often he plans on updating it.

    Interesting stuff coming from Sharpe’s NBA pro day workouts — “Paul George clone.”

    Darkhorse for the first player taken.

    ^Biggest boom/bust prospect in this draft. Star potential - but does he have it upstairs?

    I like all the names you have before Banchero but wow, Banchero at #8?

    Baldwin Jr in the top #20 at all?

    Can they get Woj off of there? He kinda ruins the excitement of hearing who’s actually getting picked
