Predicting where NBA prospects will land is a science—and hardly an exact one. But today, I'm giving my predictions and tracking the four UNC Tar Heels entering the 2012 NBA draft.
Tyler Zeller, Kendall Marshall, John Henson and Harrison Barnes are all up for grabs, and are currently taking up a lot of real estate on the NBA teams' big boards. Boards will shift and teams will surprise analysts and fans. The only thing we know is that we won't have to wait past the first round to find out the future of North Carolina's Big Four.
Nothing is etched in stone, but it appears all four players may be top-20 picks. And that is also how I have it laid out in my predictions.
During the draft, I will continually update this article as the former Tar Heels are pulled off the board. You can catch the entire NBA draft starting at 7 p.m. EDT on ESPN.
