2012 WNBA Draft Picks

No surprise that Nnemkadi Ogwumike goes #1. LA Sparks got an excellent player. Shekinna Stricklen #2, Devereaux Peters #3, Glory Johnson #4 and Natalie Novosel #8 all went to really good teams in the first round. I was happy to see that Sasha Goodlett #11 from Georgia Tech went to a good team in the first round as well. It will be interesting to see how they make the transition from college to the WNBA. They will have to adjust to new coaches, teammates, systems and cities. I’m looking forward to seeing how these players do in the upcoming season.

2012 WNBA Draft Prospects

The draft this year does not seem all that exciting to me. There are a few players that will go high up in the draft, but everyone else is a mystery. I know Tennessee and Notre Dame are losing some great seniors. Standford is losing a great senior as well. My definite picks, and not in any particular are:

Nnemkadi Ogwumike
Shekinna Stricklen
Natalie Novosel
Devereaux Peters
Glory Johnson
Sydney Carter

Like I said, what happens to all the other prospects is a mystery. It will be interesting to see what happens.
