Top 10 NBA prospects by position

We're in a little bit of draft limbo at the moment. Draft workouts won't start for another week or so … and most of those will be workouts for second-round prospects.

The real action won't heat up until the Chicago pre-draft combine in early June.

Until then we're stuck doing what every team out of the playoffs is doing … watching film and trying to create rankings.

We already have a Top 100 and a Mock Draft 4.0.

Here's a look at the draft from a different perspective: the top 10 players by position.

Note: Top 100 ranks are in parentheses.

Point guards

1. Damian Lillard, Jr., Weber State Wildcats (12)
2. Kendall Marshall, So., North Carolina Tar Heels (17)
3. Tony Wroten Jr., Fr., Washington Huskies (21)
4. Marquis Teague, Fr., Kentucky Wildcats (24)
5. Tyshawn Taylor, Sr., Kansas Jayhawks (34)
6. Scott Machado, Sr., Iona Gaels (35)
7. Tu Holloway, Sr., Xavier Musketeers (52)
8. Casper Ware, Sr., Long Beach State 49ers (73)
9. Josep Franch, France (77)
10. Jordan Taylor, Sr., Wisconsin Badgers (78)

Comments: It's a very weak point guard class this year. We don't have any PGs ranked in the top 10 and just one in the lottery. We had to include three players ranked in the 70s just to get an entire top 10.
