The 2021 WNBA Draft is less than one month away now and we have reached the third edition of the WNBA Mock Draft. We are also starting to see some seniors or age eligible juniors opt in for this year’s draft. They have to opt in this year to the draft due to the NCAA granting one more year of eligibility due to COVID-19. Aari McDonald, Dana Evans, Tiana Mangakahia, Janelle Bailey have all opted in for the draft. Most notably, Charli Collier who was a junior but age eligible to enter the draft also opted in. This means that Charli Collier, who is ranked high on WNBA Draft Boards, can officially become a part of the WNBA in April.
Here is a link to a draft board that will be useful come WNBA Draft time in April. Note that draft board has seniors only on it. Here is a link to the updated WNBA draft order after some WNBA signings/sign and trades. You can view the first edition of the WNBA Mock Draft here, as well as the second edition.
- Awak Kuier, Finland – Dallas Wings
One month later and Awak Kuier remains the top pick in this month’s WNBA Mock Draft. Her potential is endless and if she does not show up, the Dallas Wings should retain her draft rights when she does. She remains the top prospect in this draft class.
2. Charli Collier, Texas – Dallas Wings.
The Dallas Wings have the top 2 picks in this draft and the Wings should draft Charli Collier from Texas. Charli Collier has potential, but she does need to improve in some areas and if Awak Kuier does not show up to play this season, Charli Collier will be given the opportunity to show why she is worthy of a top 2 pick.
3. Aari McDonald, Arizona – Atlanta Dream
Aari McDonald moves up in this month’s WNBA Mock Draft because of her play and her ability to a top defender. The Dream greatly value defense and Aari McDonald will fit in easily. Her style of play also fits well with the Dream’s offense.
4. Chelsea Dungee, Arkansas – Indiana Fever
Chelsea Dungee increased her stock from last month and moves up a spot from last month. The Indiana Fever could use a player like her on the bench as Dungee can create offense and is a good defender.
5. Dana Evans, Louisville – Dallas Wings
Dana Evans moves down two spots and that is not because of her play, it is because the two teams ahead have made moves that would suggest that they are looking at other areas in the draft. Because the Dallas Wings have so much youth on their roster, this is the perfect spot for Dana Evans to be in. Her skill set would fit in perfectly and she could help the Wings bench immediately.
