Draftsite’s User Mock Draft Summary

Based on the 20 most recent WNBA mock drafts submitted to Draftsite, here’s the summary of which top prospects are expected to land in the first round. You can also check out our Consensus Mock Draft which aggregates the data from all the user mock drafts and inserts them in to a mock draft.

#1. New York

1. Sabrina Ionescu, 5'10" PG, Oregon - 20

To no surprise, Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu is the unanimous overall #1 pick, with all 20 mocks having her go #1 to the New York Liberty. The rest of the first round gets a little murky, especially starting with the #5 pick. Here’s the breakdown of the remaining picks from the first round.

#2. Dallas Wings
1. Satou Sabally, 6’4” F, Oregon - 17
2. Lauren Cox, 6’4” F/C, Baylor - 3

Sabally is a near-unanimous pick for the Wings with 85% of users picking her to go to Dallas.

#3. Indiana Fever
1. Lauren Cox, 6’4” F/C, Baylor - 12
2. Satou Sabally, 6’4” F, Oregon - 3
3. Chennedy Carter, 5’7” G, Texas A&M - 2
3. Ruthy Hebard, 6’4” F/C, Oregon - 2
5. Meghan Walker, 6’1” F, UCONN - 1

With just 60% of users selecting Cox at #3, it’s clear there may even be a surprise pick amongst the lottery teams.

#4. Atlanta Dream
1. Chennedy Carter, 5’7” G, Texas A&M - 13
2. Lauren Cox, 6’4” F/C, Baylor - 5
3. Ruthy Hebard, 6’4” F/C, Oregon - 1
3. Tyasha Harris, 5’10” G, South Carolina - 1

Carter still seems like the pick here for Atlanta, but a slim chance of her being taken at #3 could shake up the draft early on.

#5. Dallas Wings
1. Tyasha Harris, 5’10” G, South Carolina - 11
2. Meghan Walker, 6’1” F, UCONN - 4
3. Chennedy Carter, 5’7” G, Texas A&M - 2
3. Ruthy Hebard, 6’4” F/C, Oregon - 2
5. Bella Alarie, 6’4” F, Princeton - 1

The uncertainty of Dallas’s remaining picks is evident here with only 55% of users’ mocks taking her. The Wings’ remaining first-round picks have even more uncertainty.

#6. Minnesota Lynx
1. Meghan Walker, 6’1” F, UCONN - 9
2. Chennedy Carter, 5’7” G, Texas A&M - 3
2. Ruthy Hebard, 6’4” F/C, Oregon - 3
4. Tyasha Harris, 5’10” G, South Carolina - 2
4. Crystal Dangerfield, 5’5” G, UCONN - 2
6. Te’a Cooper, 5’8” G, Baylor - 1

No clear pick for Minnesota, though I tend to believe their pick here falls on who Dallas actually takes at #5.

#7. Dallas Wings
1. Ruthy Hebard - 6’4” F/C, Oregon - 7
2. Meghan Walker, 6’1” F, UCONN - 4
3. Beatrice Mompremier, 6’4” F/C, Miami - 3
4. Te’a Cooper, 5’8” G, Baylor - 2

With just 35% of users’ picking Hebard, there’s the likelihood of Dallas packaging this pick and possibly the #9 or #15 in a trade.

#8. Chicago Sky
1. Te’a Cooper, 5’8” G, Baylor - 7
2. Ruthy Hebard - 6’4” F/C, Oregon - 4
3. Beatrice Mompremier, 6’4” F/C, Miami - 3
4. Tyasha Harris, 5’10” G, South Carolina - 2
4. Kiah Gillespie, 6’2” F, Florida State - 2

The Sky are likely on hold until they see what Dallas does with their picks. Users are fairly split on whether the Sky take a guard or a post to boost up their bench.

#9. Dallas Wings
1. Bella Alarie, 6’4” F, Princeton - 7
2. Te’a Cooper, 5’8” G, Baylor - 6
3. Beatrice Mompremier, 6’4” F/C, Miami - 2
3. Crystal Dangerfield, 5’5” G, UCONN - 2

The Wings appear like they’ll take the best available player here. Alarie could be gone by this pick, which would put them in a position to take Cooper, assuming the Sky take don’t pick her at #8.

#10. Phoenix Mercury
1. Bella Alarie, 6’4” F, Princeton - 9
2. Kiah Gillespie, 6’2” F, Florida State - 3
3. Crystal Dangerfield, 5’5” G, UCONN - 2
3. Meghan Walker, 6’1” F, UCONN - 2

Surprised to see a solid amount of mocks having Alarie fall to Phoenix at 45%. The Mercury’s pick here is likely to add a solid SG/SF here to help on the perimeter.

#11. Seattle Storm
1. Crystal Dangerfield, 5’5” G, UCONN - 9
2. Kiah Gillespie, 6’2” F, Florida State - 3
3. Te’a Cooper, 5’8” G, Baylor - 2
3. Beatrice Mompremier, 6’4” F/C, Miami - 2

Dangerfield seems like a solid fit for Seattle. Assuming she falls here, she’ll likely be player the Storm can develop under Sue Bird.

#12. Washington Mystics
1. Jocelyn Willoughby, 6’0” F, Virginia - 6
2. Kiah Gillespie, 6’2” F, Florida State - 5
3. Bella Alarie, 6’4” F, Princeton - 2
3. Shadeen Samuels, 6’0” F, Seton Hall - 2
3. Mikiah Herbert Harrigan, 6’2” F, South Carolina - 2

The Mystics’ pick here will likely end up being the best available player. Willoughby would be a solid choice to add in the backcourt, but adding Gillespie here would be a solid addition as well.

Additional:

There were some other notable names getting picked in the first round by some users. Oregon State’s Mikayla Pivec was picked to go #11 by Seattle by one user. South Carolina’s Mikiah Herbert Harrigan was picked by someone to go as high as #8 to Chicago. West Virginia’s Tynice Martin was a solo pick by another user to go to the Storm at #11. And lastly, Maryland’s Kaila Charles was picked in one mock to go to the Mystics at #12.
