Michigan State freshman Jaren Jackson Jr. is projected to be the No. 3 overall pick, by the Atlanta Hawks, in a new NBA mock draft by ESPN (pay site). “The youngest prospect in the draft, Jackson may have the highest ceiling of anyone in this class in terms of his ability to affect the game on both ends of the floor,” writes ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. “It’s easy to see Jackson manning the center position for Atlanta or pairing with exciting rookie big man John Collins in an athletic frontcourt.”
