    With the first pick of this year’s NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers selected Washington guard Markelle Fultz.

    The move was not much of a surprise as all seven of the NBA draft experts we surveyed before the draft were projecting Fultz to be the first pick. The Lakers followed by selecting Lonzo Ball out of UCLA.

    Below, we’ll track each pick of the NBA draft and compare those selections to where some of the top draft experts predicted the player to be picked.
