The 2018 NBA Draft class should be one of the deeper and most talented in some time.
There are a number of elite big men and some game-changing wing players who project to be able to develop into future all-stars.
One of those potential stars just officially declared for the 2018 draft: Jaren Jackson Jr.

While still very young and a little raw, Jackson has scouts salivating with his ability to develop into a top-notch rim protector and stretch big man, the prototypical big man of the current NBA.
Jackson could, in theory, go as high No.3 or even No.2 and has drawn comparisons to LaMarcus Aldridge or Shareef Abdur-Rahim with rim protecting ability, which would be a pretty tantalizing player.
He averaged 10.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.0 blocks on 51.3% shooting from the field and 39.6% from three-point range.
