Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

With 2019 NBA Mock Drafts already underway be sure to vote up your favorites on this list. Obviously drawing from the best college basketball players right now, this list includes Zion Williamson who is a clear leader among the other players. Teammate R.J. Barrett isn't far behind him. There are also international players that should be considered such as Sekou Doumbouya from France. But on this list you can choose which college basketball star you think will go first in the 2019 NBA draft. Which 2019 NBA prospects do you think will be first round draft picks or even become the 2019 NBA number one pick?

North Carolina, Kansas, and Kentucky all have a strong showing leading up to the draft with their forwards and shooting guards Nassir Little, Quentin Grimes, and Keldon Johnson. Only time will tell which one of these college basketball players will become future stars in the NBA and what order they will go in the draft. So get your vote in now before it's too late. 

Check back often to see how your votes match up to other basketball fans from across the nation.
