With March Madness officially under way, that means there’s only three weeks left in the college basketball season. After the tournament, the players entering the draft will attend the pre-draft combine held in Chicago in May. The prospects have built their draft profile all year long, and the combine is the perfect opportunity for them to shine in position-specific workouts. The 2014 draft class has the potential to be one of the best of all-time. Below is a mock draft for the first five picks.

Even though he’s still raw, Wiggins arguably has the highest ceiling of any player in this class. When a team has the top pick, it’s critical to select someone who has upside with a game that will transition well to the next level. Wiggins started the season a little slow but has really come on strong as the season has winded down. His last three games, he’s averaged 31 points a game and shown an ability to dominate a game on both ends of the floor. He projects as a two-way player similar to Paul George. From day one, Wiggins would be a walk-in starter for Milwaukee.
