Featuring some of the best college basketball players right now, these are the top prospects for the 2018 NBA Draft. Unlike other NBA mock drafts, our 2018 prospect rankings are by fan votings, so anybody can make their draft predictions here. Who will go number one in the 2018 NBA Draft?

Slovenian guard Luka Doncic is highly regarded as the 2018 number one pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Able to play multiple positions at a high level, the 2017 FIBA EuroBasket champion is currently playing for Real Madrid of the Liga ACB and EuroLeague. For NCAA players, 2018 NBA draft projections predict Arizona center DeAndre Ayton, Missouri small forward Michael Porter Jr., and Oklahoma point guard Trae Young to be first-rounders. Some draft sleepers include Chandler Hutchison, Khyri Thomas, and Melvin Frazier.

Vote up the best players in the 2018 NBA draft class who are most likely to get picked first. Since the NBA season is still going, the draft order isn't set, but we can expect teams like Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns, and Dallas Mavericks, to go first in the lottery. And for those wondering when is the 2018 NBA Draft, don't miss all the action on June 21.
