    1. Players I am most covetous of in the 2015 draft, in order:
      1. Jahlil Okafor
      2. Stanley Johnson
      3. Myles Turner
      4. Karl-Anthony Towns
      5. Montrezl Harrell

      I prefer Towns over everyone else. To me, Okafor looks like a lesser rebounding Al Jefferson; I like Jefferson but I’m hoping for more from the 1st overall pick. Towns looks like he could be the complete package though he is still very raw and I really wish he were playing more minutes.

    3. Re: Jets, I’d feel much worse if there was a clear-cut stud at the top of the draft. Any of the first 10 picks has a chance to be the best pick.
