NBA Mock Draft Roundup: Brice Johnson

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Brice Johnson spent four years at North Carolina and was a consensus first team All-American his senior year. He helped lead the Tar Heels to the National Championship where they were just seconds away from a decisive overtime.  Johnson averaged 17 points and 10.4 rebounds in his senior season at UNC. 

We compiled mock drafts from across the industry and here's where they have the UNC grad being drafted:

The Vertical's 2016 NBA mock draft: No. 25, L.A. Clippers

CBS Sports: No. 22, Charlotte Hornets

The Washington Post: No. 20, Indiana Pacers

NBA.com: No. 29, San Antonio Spurs

SB Nation: Not listed in first round.

Johnson looks to be a late first rounder and he received high praise from ESPN college basketball analyst, and Duke graduate, Jay Bilas.

 “He's a senior and led his team to the national championship game but had 23 double-doubles," said Bilas. "I think he's the best rebounder in the draft. Really great athlete. Can really run. He's got a great shooting touch." 

Johnson will have to wait to hear his name called at the NBA Draft June 23rd.
