Final draft board for the 2013 WNBA Draft

We'll be tracking the 2013 WNBA Draft as it goes tonight, but here is a final draft board after all that analysis over the past few months.

USA TODAY Sports

As I said when the last draft board was posted, it was my plan to post an updated final draft board.

Bear in mind this is not a predictive order - especially not within tiers - but gauging the level of risk based on all of those draft statistics. And a couple other notes that can't be forgotten here:

  • The first four tiers have only 12 players. That would make them candidates for the first round. Tier 5 could be considered second round picks, but obviously not everybody has the same draft board as me so those are all candidates for the first round. By the time we get to Tier 6 and 7, we're talking about the third round and it's a little bit more hit or miss.
  • Medical reports are important and I don't have those assessments from teams, but they do take them into account.
