March is finally here, which can only mean that the NCAA tournament is right around the corner. Before the wildest month in college sports gets underway, we thought now would be an appropriate time to trot a new big board.

A quick refresher on how this works:

Each writer provided their top-20 favorite draft prospects, which we turned into a cumulative top 25. When calculating out the averages, any player who was not on an individual's list was given the value of 21. Some of our honorable mentions include Duke’s Harry Giles, Žalgiris Kaunas’s Isaiah Hartenstein and Kentucky’s Bam Adebayo.

T-25. Terrance Ferguson - SG, Adelaide 36ers, 18 years old

Average ranking: 20.1 Ballots: 3/10

Shamus Clancy (ranked him 17th): Ferguson went the route of Brandon Jennings and Emmanuel Mudiay as a McDonald's All-American who played high school ball in the United States, but is spending his one pre-draft year playing overseas. With the Adelaide 36ers in Australia's National Basketball League, his playing time and role has been inconsistent at times, not terribly surprising for an 18-year-old shooting guard in a league full of grown men. His offensive game isn't very evolved at this point, but as a guy who can stand in the corner and hit a catch-and-shoot three, he has the ability to contribute immediately on that side of the ball, a pressing need for the Sixers.

T-25. De’Anthony Melton - PG, USC, 18 years old

Average ranking: 20.1 Ballots: 2/10

Mike Levin (ranked him 15th): Length and versatility. The mostly unheralded USC freshman has a 3.7 percent steal rate and 4.1 percent block rate, the combination of which make him absolutely special as an 18-year-old defense-first prospect. His offense at this point is all projection -- the jumper looks good but only 32 percent from deep, he's athletic but not bouncy, and he gets to the line well for a freshman, but only shoots 71 percent from there. He probably won't come out this year because he's playing behind older guys like Elijah Stewart and Jordan McLaughlin, but if he gambles on it, you'd be getting a very young do-it-all guard with room to grow on offense and incredible tools and awareness on the defensive end. The scouting hasn't caught up with the numbers yet, but it will.

23. Rodions Kurucs - SF, Barcelona B, 19 years old

Average ranking: 20 Ballots: 1/10

Shamus Clancy (ranked him 11th): If you had been wondering, "What European prospect who I have never seen play will Shamus get irrational excited for?" the answer is Kurcus, a wing from Barcelona's reserve team. "He's not even playing on the main club?" He's not and I don't care! Standing 6 foot 8 and long, the 19-year-old Latvian reminds me of the player Mario Hezonja should've been with some more defensive upside given his effort and motor, plus he doesn't seem to be an insufferable person. In videos of him playing games in empty gyms, he looks as if he could make a formidable partner with Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot as the Super Slash Bros. on the perimeter with his athleticism and burst. A 33 percent shooter from deep in his two seasons with Barcelona II, he's yet another possible 3-and-D player to fit in nicely around Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. With two years remaining on his deal in Spain after this season, catch me in customs of the Philadelphia International Airport waiting for him sometime in the summer of 2019.

T-22. Andrew Jones - PG, Texas, 19 years old

Average ranking: 19.8 Ballots: 1/10

Marc Whittington (ranked him 9th): Andrew Jones probably won't wind up coming out this year, as he has toiled away for a disappointing Texas team in relative obscurity. Still, he has put together an impressive season, and has the makings of a two-way shooting guard with some true secondary handling ability. At 6 foot 4 with a plus wingspan and fantastic athleticism, he has the physical tools to compete in the NBA right away. At Texas, he has been forced to burden more of the playmaking responsibility than he should, and while this has resulted in an abundance of turnovers, he has demonstrated a capacity to operate out of the pick-and-roll and make smart, basic reads as a passer. Playing in space and terrorizing the opposing ball handler with his POV defense, would be an ideal situation for him, and with Ben Simmons likely to shoulder much of the creation responsibility for the Sixers' future, Jones could be both a good fit and a good player in Philadelphia.

T-22. Zach Collins - C, Gonzaga, 19 years old

Average ranking: 19.8 Ballots: 3/10

Marc Whittington (ranked him 15th): Due to Gonzaga’s plethora of talented bigs, Collins has flown a bit under the radar, as he only plays 17 minutes a game. But he has been incredibly productive in those minutes, scoring efficiently out of the post, protecting the rim, and showing some ability to defend in space. While I had him lower on my board here, there is a real argument for Collins as the best big in this draft, especially if his shooting (44 percent on low volume from 3, 75 percent from the line) translates to the next level. Collins combines the best of both worlds, as he’s skilled and big on offense, but not a lumbering oaf on defense.

20. Mikal Bridges - SF, Villanova, 20 years old

Average ranking: 19.2 Ballots: 4/10

Marc Whittington (ranked him 11th): This dude deserves way more buzz than he has been getting. As the best healthy perimeter defender in the draft discussion (peep those steal and block percentages, man), he has considerable upside fit into switch-heavy schemes and create havoc on- and off-ball. Where he has surprised this year is as a shooter and finisher, as he has put up a 55-40-90 season. He’ll never be a primary or secondary creator, but as a 3-and-D freak who limits his turnovers and has plus vision, Bridges has a lot of upside. He won’t be, but he should be a lottery selection this June.

19. Donovan Mitchell - SG, Louisville, 20 years old

Average ranking: 19.1 Ballots: 4/10

Mike Levin (ranked him 11th): Having been traveling the country looking for the next Avery Bradley, my radar detectors went off immediately with this guy. The numbers bore that out. His 3.9 percent steal rate is tops among wing prospects and behind only Ethan Happ among all prospects. Though AB only stayed one year at Texas and Mitchell is a true sophomore at Louisville, Mitchell's numbers are up on Bradley across the board. They are both tremendously quick laterally, which allows them to stay in front of bigger guards despite their 6-foot-3 size. Where Mitchell separates himself is in his powerful, bouncy, NBA-ready body. Put that in Rick Pitino's system and it's easy to see why he's the most important player on a top 10 team in the country despite not having much dimension to his offensive game. If you really believe in Ben Simmons as a point guard, Mitchell could be your de facto one, having the toughest guard assignment on defense and catch-shoot/cutting on offense. Providing the jumper improvement is real (up from 25 percent as a freshman to 38 percent as a sophomore), he should absolutely be getting more lottery love. I want him. Also: when he takes a charge, the offensive player would be sliding into our DM. ALSO Also: my family dog is named Donovan (after McNabb), which opens up a world of #RubTheDog possibilities for the next era of viral fan-pet celebratory traditions.

18. T.J. Leaf - PF, UCLA, 19 years old

Average ranking: 18.9 Ballots: 4/10

Roy Burton (ranked him 15th): Lonzo Ball is the main reason Westwood is back on the college basketball map, but his running mate T.J. Leaf is a bonafide star in his own right. He's got the ability (at 6 foot 10, he can score from virtually anywhere on the floor), as well as the DNA (father Brad Leaf played high-level pro ball in Europe for 17 years), and he would be a top-10 pick in a draft class that wasn't as loaded as this one. The Kevin Love comparisons aren't completely lazy/off-base, but Leaf is a better shooter (and worse rebounder) than Love was at the same point in his development. Given where he falls on the Big Board, the Sixers don't figure to wind up with Leaf on draft day, but stranger things have happened. The only question: Is there room for two TJs on the same team?

17. John Collins - PF, Wake Forest, 19 years old

Average ranking: 18.6 Ballots: 6/10

Jake Hyman (ranked him 16th): An underclassman in the ACC, John Collins is using throwback methods to wreak havoc on the heralded conference. Collins wins with offensive awareness, hustle and consistency as a rising sophomore. He's averaging 24.1 points and 11.0 rebounds, while shooting 67.1 percent from the floor, over his last 11 games and has overmatched opponents on the block. A traditional, 6 foot 10, 235-pound power forward, Collins possesses post prowess and can be featured in pick-and-pop situations from mid range at the NBA level. He hasn't shown stretch four potential yet, which would obviously elevate his stock come June, but teams will appreciate his skill set. Defensively, he has some rim-protecting potential and switching capabilities. I have him just outside of the lottery due to other talents having superior upside, but Collins could stick longer as potential high-end role player for a contender. With additional bulk, he could be a small-ball 5 and will assuredly be an alley-oop outlet throughout his career. While he might not roll out of bed with 20 and 10 in the association, Collins is an analytical dream with glue guy potential.

16. Luke Kennard - SG, Duke, 20 years old

Average ranking: 17.5 Ballots: 7/10

Jake Pavorsky (ranked him 13th): I’m usually the type of guy who tries to avoid falling for college players who contribute nothing outside of scoring, yet I can’t help but think he’s going to find a role at the next level. His shooting numbers have taken a ginormous leap this year, and he’s carried Duke’s offense on his back through long stretches. I just love the variety of ways he’s able to score. With the ball in his hands he can knock down pull jumpers, or take a defender into the paint and score around the rim (he’s currently shooting 62.3 percent around the rim). Off ball, he’s a deadly spot up shooter who doesn’t need a ton of space to get his jumper off. He’s not a great athlete, defender, or an active passer, but I’m willing to believe his scoring prowess alone should make him a viable NBA player. High floor, low ceiling.

15. Robert Williams - C, Texas A&M, 19 years old

Average ranking: 16.7 Ballots: 8/10

Kyle Neubeck (ranked him 17th): This is the obligatory "raw talent who might never get there" guy that I love this year. At his best he's a menace on both ends for A&M, but he's had struggles against high-end competition and can look completely lost and over-aggressive at his worst. He's able to impact the game as a cutter, a lob-finisher, a shot-blocker, and to some extent with basic post moves, so if he can put it all together there's a lot to like here. I think with his downsides, a dice roll in the mid-first is a good compromise.

14. De’Aaron Fox - PG, Kentucky, 19 years old

Average ranking: 14.3 Ballots: 8/10

Matt Carey (ranked him 11th): This man can not be a Sixer. Don’t get me wrong, I like Fox quite a bit. He is what Elfrid Payton is supposed to be – quick, athletic, a good passer, sound defender. There’s just one minor problem. Dude can’t shoot. Currently a 17 percent yes you read that right a 17 percent three point shooter, Fox’s jumper is the basketball equivalent of the 2006 M. Night Shyamalan classic Lady in the Water. It’s your car not starting before a job interview. It’s a halftime show starring Desiigner. Playing him with Ben Simmons would create a spacing nightmare that you only have to watch an Orlando Magic game or two to truly understand.

13. Justin Patton - C, Creighton, 19 years old

Average ranking: 13.9 Ballots: 7/10

Marc Whittington (ranked him 8th): I wish I had put Patton a little lower, as I’ve caught up a bit on his stats and tape since I sent in those rankings. Still, he’s a very bouncy 7-footer who can slide easily into a backup center role behind JoJo. He’ll be a terror on offense as a dive man in the pick-and-roll, with some marginal potential to pass on the move and step out to hit a jumper. He’s less of a defensive presence than you would want, given his physical tools, but there’s apathy to him being a positive rim protector here as well. With Noel gone, he could be a nice backup option to Embiid.

12. Josh Hart - SG, Villanova, 21 years old

Average ranking: 13.4 Ballots: 10/10

Jake Fischer (ranked him 15th): After the top 10 picks or so, a lot of teams tend to over think the draft. Teams start finding reasons not to draft guys rather than arguments in favor of prospects. Not long, enough, too old, doesn't have one, truly elite skill. And then you have Malcolm Brogdon and Rodney Hood and Patrick McCaw and Mason Plumlee, etc. fall for trivial reasons. Josh Hart will probably be another one of those guys. He's not A+ at any skill in particular, although he's proven to be an elite three-point shooter in college. Hart reminds me of another Philly product in DeAndre’ Bembry. He's a multi-faceted offensive weapon and he'll fit in seamlessly. Draft this kid early.

11. OG Anunoby - SF, Indiana, 19 years old

Average ranking: 13.0 Ballots: 9/10

Shamus Clancy (ranked him 12th): Let's get the bad out of the way first: he's shot 52.2 percent from the free throw line across two collegiate seasons. His inconsistent shooting stroke is his swing skill as he transitions to the pros and will decide his fate as a possible longterm NBA contributor. His physical profile is undeniable though, standing 6 foot 8 with a monstrous 7-foot-6 wingspan that dwarfs that of even Kawhi Leonard and Giannis Antetokounmpo. His defensive presence has had him on the national radar since last season's matchup with Kentucky in the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament, where he stifled future lottery pick Jamal Murray and an assortment of blue-chip Wildcat players along the wing. The Sixers have been betting on guys with all-world athleticism without a shot for the last four years. Maybe this will be the one who figures it all out?

10. Lauri Markkanen - PF, Arizona, 19 years old

Average ranking: 11.2 Ballots: 9/10

Max Rappaport (ranked him 8th): Over the course of this college basketball season I’ve fallen in love with Lauri Markkanen, and as hard as I try I can’t shake my infatuation with him and his majestic shooting stroke. The Finnish seven-footer is averaging 15.4 points and 7.4 rebounds for Arizona this season, shooting a ridiculous 44.4 percent from long range on a healthy 133 attempts. Dirk Nowitzki is an easy comp for the sandy-haired, bird-chested big man, but when I watch him play I see a lot of Sixers legend Ersan Ilyasova in him. That’s a good thing I think. Markkanen is an interesting target for the Sixers should they fall out of the top-7 in this year’s draft lottery. I would also love to nab him using a draft night package centered around Jahlil Okafor.

9. Miles Bridges - F, Michigan State, 18 years old

Average ranking: 10.3 Ballots: 9/10

Matt Carey (ranked him 10th): Seemingly every draft has an undersized positionless tweener that everybody is either all-in on (I never left you, Montrezl) or completely out on (oh hey, Denzel Valentine) and Miles Bridges is the wealthiest man’s version of that. If Bridges was three inches taller, he’d be a top-5 pick. But he’s not. He’s 6 foot 6 and is best suited as a small ball four, a position the Sixers possess roughly 37 players to play. He’s ultra-athletic, he can switch defensively, and he’s a killer in transition. There is a world in which Miles Bridges can thrive in the NBA. I don’t think the Sixers are that world, but I would be open to be proven wrong on that front.

8. Frank Ntilikina - PG, Strasbourg SIG, 18 years old

Average ranking: 7.3 Ballots: 10/10

Kyle Neubeck (ranked him 8th): He's almost in here as a placeholder as much as anything. Very toolsy. His jumper showed progress in international play over the last 12 months, and would be in a perfect situation as more of a secondary option/ball handler in Philadelphia. But his ranking on my board reflects a lack of faith in some of the guys behind him; I haven't been able to watch Ntilikina tape as much as I'd like, as opposed to somebody like Fox who I've watched throw up houses worth of bricks at Kentucky. I'll probably be circling back on him more once the NCAA season ends.

7. Malik Monk - SG, Kentucky, 19 years old

Average ranking: 7.0 Ballots: 10/10

Roy Burton (ranked him 5th): I'm not sure what's most impressive about Malik Monk: The fact that he's averaging nearly 22 points per game as a freshman at Kentucky (seriously... who does that?) or that he's putting up those numbers despite some questionable shot selection at times. Opinions about him are all over the map due to his 6-foot-3 frame, but from a pure fit standpoint, Monk is probably the best complement to the current Sixers' core. He may not develop into more than a one-dimensional bucket-getter at the next level, but the Sixers haven't seen someone with his skill set in quite some time.

6. Jayson Tatum - SF, Duke, 18 years old

Average ranking: 6.6 Ballots: 10/10

Jake Hyman (ranked him 4th): The phrase "can make all the throws" gets tossed around a lot for the top QB prospects in the NFL draft. That analogy works here, when evaluating Duke forward Jayson Tatum. Whether it's a hesitation wiggle into a jumper or a drive and spin to get momentum heading to the rim, Tatum's flashing next-level offensive moves and can finish tough sequences in the half court. His efficiency on certain shots is underwhelming for a high-end wing prospect (38.7 percent on two-point jumpers, 36.0 percent from 3, 58.6 percent at the rim), but Tatum's FT (87.0 percent) and TS% (55.9 percent) clips suggest his numbers can improve offensively. An elite prospect when posting up and in isolation, he'd be an ideal, synergistic fit alongside Embiid and Simmons. Defensively, he's not a Josh Jackson, but there's promise. He can switch from either forward spot on defense, and, at 6 foot 8 and 204 pounds, can handle slashing wings. Tatum salvaged going 1-12 from deep over his last two games with a 15-point, nine-rebound, and two-steal performance in a showcase against Jonathan Isaac Tuesday. Tatum's well-rounded game and offensive upside is worth investing a top-4 pick on.

5. Jonathan Isaac - F, Florida State, 19 years old

Average ranking: 5.8 Ballots: 10/10

Jake Pavorsky (ranked him 4th): The more I watch Isaac, the more I can see him being a really impactful wing at the next level. Florida State’s system still doesn’t really allow for him to take over games, but he’s a remarkably efficient player in the limited touches he gets. He’s a solid ball handler who can create his own looks from the outside, and with that sort of size and length, he’s a really troubling player to try and guard. On defense, his 7-foot-1 wingspan has helped him be an agitating, versatile defender who also blocks a good amount of shots. I think the most under appreciated aspect of his game is his rebounding, which is especially impressive considering how slight of frame he is. He’s pulling down over seven boards a game! Put some meat on his bones and give him another year to grow into his body, and what you’ll have is a freakish two-way player who could be a franchise cornerstone for years to come.

4. Dennis Smith Jr. - PG, N.C. State, 19 years old

Average ranking: 5.3 Ballots: 10/10

Max Rappaport (ranked him 2nd): This guy’s the REAL DEAL. A SHOWSTOPPER. Super BOUNCY with MAJOR game!! That’s at least according to Dennis Smith Jr.’s BallIsLife mixtapes, which are solid enough sources for me.

DSJ’s the dynamic point guard the process has so badly been missing, and in a draft class that features three other blue chippers at his position – Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, and Frank Ntilikina, it’s possible he could be had with a pick outside the top three. The 6 foot 3 freshman is averaging 18.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 4.3 rebounds per game this year with NC State, shooting 46.1 percent from the floor and 37.2 percent from deep while getting to the line for 6.5 attempts per game. With a 57.9 percent true shooting percentage, near 2:1 assist-to-turnover ratio, and excellent steal rate, he backs up his outstanding eye testability with efficient production. Unlike Lonzo Ball, Smith has the ability to both create his own shot off the dribble and serve as a scoring threat in pick-and-roll situations. But also unlike Ball, he will likely need the ball in his hands a fair amount to maximize his impact in the NBA. It really comes down to what the Sixers see as Ben Simmons’ role moving forward.

3. Josh Jackson - SF, Kansas, 20 years old

Average ranking: 3.1 Ballots: 10/10

Kyle Neubeck (ranked him 2nd): He is pretty firmly the second best player in this class for me, and his jumper is the only thing that scares me from a Sixers perspective. His shot has come around of late, but it's his overall skill package that gives me the most hope he'll be able to figure it out (despite the bad free throw numbers). Jackson is so good at so many different things -- he's equal parts playmaker and weak-side shot blocker for the Jayhawks -- that I just believe once he's in a pro setting with all the time in the world to work on his shot, it'll come around. Add him on the wing and you have a 2-4 wing rotation that can switch onto almost anybody, and I'd love to watch him run with Ben Simmons in transition for a decade-plus.

2. Lonzo Ball - PG, UCLA, 19 years old

Average ranking: 2.8 Ballots: 10/10

Jake Fischer (ranked him 2nd): I wake up every morning with a struggle. My heart tells me to list Lonzo at No. 1 on my board, but my head wins the tug-of-war, arguing for Fultz. I'll probably end up having Lonzo No. 1 on my board come May. This current point guard era of the NBA has a ton of true talents at the position -- and I know it's a cliche -- but few truly make their teammates better, create open looks for others and pass players open. Ball has that gift. He's a master of the pick-and-roll. He's lethal in transition. You can poke holes at his form and inconsistency getting past defenders off the bounce, I just think he has that it factor, crazy father be damned. If anything, how poised Lonzo is in the shadow of how insane LaVar acts in the media, it makes me that much more of a fan.

1. Markelle Fultz - G, Washington, 18 years old

Average ranking: 1 Ballots: 10/10

Jake Pavorsky (ranked him 1st): There’s no real discussion here. Markelle Fultz is far and away the best player in this draft, and from an offensive perspective, the most polished. He can score at all three levels, especially around the rim, where his 6 foot 9 wingspan really comes in handy. Fultz is also an adept passer who knows how to put his teammates in position to score. He’s got a good amount of bounce in his game. Every once in a while he’ll break out an impressive dunk, and defensively he lives for the chance to crush an opponent’s soul with a chase-down block. My only real concern is his willingness to defend in the half court, but it’s quite possible that he’s suffering from Ben Simmons syndrome; some guys just don’t give it their all on defense for terrible teams. He’s certainly got the physical tools to be an elite defender, and if he can add that to what he already brings to the table offensive, then Fultz should be a multi-time All-Star.
