    Earlier this month, Tennessee star forward Grant Williams announced his intention to test the waters of the 2019 NBA Draft. Williams proclaimed that he’s keeping the door open to return to the Vols for his senior season, but he fully intends to go through the process of the draft and get all the feedback he possibly can from NBA teams, scouts, his family, and his coaches.

    The two-time SEC Player of the Year has had an extremely decorated college career, but there have still been questions about how his style of play can translate to the NBA game. Most projections over the last month have had Williams slotted as a late first-round pick, but he’s started to rise up draft boards even with well over 100 underclassmen declaring for this year’s draft.

    Williams and every other underclassman has until May 29th to withdraw their name from the draft pool and return to school. Until then, though, Williams will workout with teams, get advice from scouts and analysts, and evaluate all his options.

    Before that process truly begins, I wanted to take a very in-depth look at where Grant Williams places in various NBA Draft big boards and in select mock drafts.

    The 2019 NBA Draft will take place on June 20th, and the lottery order for the first 14 picks hasn’t been determined yet. We’re slightly less than two months away from the draft, so there’s plenty of time for Williams and any number of prospects to increase their stock.

    With all that in mind, let’s take a look at where Williams’ draft stock is.
