  1. Jahlil Okafor, Duke (18.1 PPG, 8.7 RPG, 1.4 BLK)

Everyone is very high on Okafor, but that’s only on one side of the ball. On offense, the 6’10 center will be a force of nature. But the dude can’t play defense. Yes he does average about one and a half blocks, but he is late on rotations. His offensive game looks very similar to Shaq. But his defense is similar to that of Carlos Boozer. Will he go number one overall? Probably. Anytime you can have a dominant force on offense, you take it.
