Aggregate Mock Draft Rank in 2018: 100

Actual NBA Draft Position in 2019: 42

The former Tennessee Vols star tested as the second-best combo forward at the combine, per NBAthlete.com. While he is not particularly tall for his position, his lane agility and shuttle run both ranked in the Top 10 percent among combo forwards in combine history. His bench press reps (15) and standing vertical (30 inches) were both impressive, too.

Schofield was a prolific spot-up shooter last season, whose points per possession ranked in the 86th percentile on this play type. He improved his three-point percentage each year in college, eventually shooting 41.8 percent from downtown as a senior.

He was also one of the most efficient players in transition. The Wizards finished more possessions in transition than all but two teams in the Eastern Conference last year, which can be an immediate way for him to fit in with their offense.

PJ Washington | Carsen Edwards | Bruno Fernando | Cody Martin | Jalen McDaniels | Jaylen Hands
