Let me start this off by saying that it's still very early to start talking about the draft. From now until June 27th, everything will change. Where the 76ers will pick, who will declare for the draft, and even how those players are rated will change a lot. In the last instance, it will probably change more than it rightly should, as there is frequently too much of an emphasis placed upon performances in the NCAA tournament and pre-draft workouts.

That being said, and I may be biased on this, but it's never too early to start talking about the draft. This is especially true when everything there is to talk about pertaining to the 76ers is frustrating at best, infuriating at worst.

So talk we shall.

This isn't meant to be a scouting report(s). We'll get to writing about those, but not yet. Those will come after we know for sure who will be in the draft and where the 76ers will pick, and we can focus our efforts towards those who are actually possibilities of being drafted by the 76ers. If you want detailed scouting reports on prospects now, I know of a good service that you should go check out.

This is also not a ranking. Any ranking is purely coincidental. Every year we release a Liberty Ballers big board, but that won't be done until we get closer to the draft time and we know who is going to be in it.
