2018 NBA Draft Positional Report
Power Forward Mock Selections

This new tool condenses 2018 NBA Mock Draft content from around WalterFootball.com. Below are all the 2018 NBA Mock Draft selections for the power forward position from Paul Banks' and David Kay's 2018 NBA Mock Draft and a summary from the WalterFootball.com 2018 Mock NBA Draft Builder.

Dave's Mock Selections

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 2 Kings: Marvin Bagley III, PF, Duke
    This pick will likely come down to Bagley or Luka Doncic. Bagley is a crazy athlete who handles the ball really well for his size. The lefty shoots the ball well from the outside and reminds many of Chris Bosh. The Kings need a franchise player, and I think Bagley has more upside than Doncic. Plus, he seems to actually want to play for Sacramento unlike many other top prospects.

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 5 Mavericks: Jaren Jackson, PF, Michigan State
    Due to his combination of length, athleticism, and range on his jumper, Jackson has the makings of a modern-day NBA frontcourt player. He was also the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year, so he is capable of getting it done on both ends of the floor. With Dirk Nowitzki on his final legs in the NBA and no great big on the roster, a prospect like Jackson is needed on this team.

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 7 Bulls: Wendell Carter Jr., PF, Duke
    Carter Jr. was in the shadows a bit during his freshman season at Duke, but he has the tools and physical attributes to be an effective big man at the next level. Carter and Lauri Markkanen would form a promising young frontcourt of the future.

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 13 Clippers: Robert Williams, PF, Texas A&M
    The Clippers have versatility at forward with Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari, but they could use some depth behind them. Due to his strength, athleticism, and ability to clean up the glass, Williams would bring a different dimension than Harris or Gallinari, and will also be able to play the five at the next level.

  • Rd. 2, Pk. 6 Knicks: Omari Spellman, PF, Villanova
    Spellman is an inside/outside threat who can use his size and strength inside but can also step out and knock down three-pointers.

  • Rd. 2, Pk. 14 Wizards: Chimezie Metu, PF, USC
    Long and athletic, Metu attacks the glass and also has a nice back-to-the-basket game.

  • Rd. 2, Pk. 19 Spurs: Angel Delgado, PF, Seton Hall
    A double-double machine, Delgado could find his niche in the NBA as a rebounder/energy guy.

  • Rd. 2, Pk. 21 Pelicans: Billy Preston, PF, USA
    A top-30 recruit in the 2017 class, Preston didn't play for Kansas this past season due to the FBI investigation, but he has good projectibility for an NBA power forward.

  • Rd. 2, Pk. 25 Hornets: Alize Johnson, PF, Missouri State
    Lengthy and bouncy, Johnson was a double-double machine at Missouri State.

Daves's 2018 NBA Mock Draft

Mike's Mock Selections

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 10 Bulls: Robert Williams, PF, Texas A&M
    Robert Williams to me is an NBA center, and as the Bulls need to groom a young defensive center and the value is strong, he is an obvious fit. Williams is one of the best shot-blockers and rebounders in the nation, and would look nice next to Lauri Markkanen for the Bulls.

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 11 Clippers: Wendell Carter, PF, Duke
    Wendell Carter isn't the most athletic big man, but he can score the ball, is one of the best rebounders in the country, and is a very talented shot-blocker. I have been very impressed watching him. With DeAndre Jordan about to walk or be traded, the Clippers will need another center, and Carter would be a nice fit with Blake Griffin. If Carter were on any team other than Duke, his numbers would be some of the best in the country.

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 13 Knicks: Jaren Jackson, PF, Michigan State
    Jaren Jackson is the perfect modern power forward. He is a shooting big man, but is also an elite shot-blocker and rebounder who has athleticism and size. Jackson would match well with Enes Kanter and Kristaps Porzignis, one of the league's best big man duos. Jackson would be a steal at No. 13.

  • Rd. 1, Pk. 28 Cavaliers: Chimezie Metu, PF, USC
    The Cavaliers have poor big man depth, and if they keep this pick, I like what Chimezie Metu would give them. He is an excellent rebounder and shot-blocker who is a strong scorer and has developed a jump shot in his three seasons at USC.
