Draft Express has updated their mock draft and despite missing the latter part of the season with an injury, Nerlens Noel sits atop the predicted draft board. You can't help but think that had Nerlens not gotten injured, Kentucky would have made the field of 68 for the NCAA Tournament instead of the NIT. But, it is what it is.
This should also stop any kind of speculation about Noel returning for a sophomore season. Considering his injury and being projected #1 in the draft, he should definitely strike while the iron is hot. Why risk returning to college and suffering another injury?
