Draftday aims to analyze players at the collegiate level and project their impact on an NBA court.

Draftday was able to generate this redraft solely looking at NCAA stats. Note Donovan Mitchell in the top 3.

At face value, college stats don't say anything. Draft picks are largely based on performance in big games and the all-telling eye test.

tl;dr: college stats hold little correlation to NBA stats.

The draft's lack of a statistical basis is what leads to most teams missing out on talent.

Draftday is an algorithm that uses a proprietary combination of NCAA metrics to generate its draft rankings.
