Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel is very likely the No. 1 pick in this draft and certainly a Top 3 choice. As has been said by many, this is a draft full of risks and gambles so you might as well gamble on the 6’10” guy with the crazy wingspan who can jump out of the building. Even if he is coming off ACL surgery.
Noel went on the Dan Patrick show and had the line of the day — ‘With my hair, I’m seven feet” (tall). Noel also talks knee surgery and rehab, plus why he should go No. 1 overall.
