1. Cleveland: Nerlens Noel, C, Kentucky, 6-10/2061. Cleveland: Nerlens Noel, Kentucky
The buzz: Noel, a gifted shot-blocker, is the most impactful, most talented player in the draft. But his health is a concern after he tore the ACL in his left knee midway through his freshman season. The Cavs have their point guard of the future, Kyrie Irving, and likely have their shooting guard of the future, Dion Waiters, last year's fourth overall pick. I think the Cavs will go with Noel if they're comfortable with the tests on his knee.
