The story of the college basketball offseason was that Michigan State's Miles Bridges passed on being a first-round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft to return to school for his sophomore seaosn.

But by midseason, Bridges isn't even projected as the highest 2018 NBA Draft pick on his own team, in most selections.

Both Bridges and Spartans freshman forward Jaren Jackson Jr. are unanimous in a sampling of mock drafts, five months before the 2018 Draft in June.

And while Bridges is undoubtedly the more high-profile player for the Spartans, most prognosticators are favoring Jackson to hear his name called first on draft night.
