It’s that time for the yearly update for this mock draft. I released the first ever version two years ago, then updated it one year ago. These players are juniors and are now one year away from their WNBA Draft. We have seen these players improve and become better in their three and a half years in college. Some of them are becoming prime WNBA draft prospects already.
Because this draft will take place one year from now, we don’t know the correct order of WNBA teams who will be picking the draft picks. We also don’t know who will have the #1 overall pick. I shall update it near the end of this year and then next year when their draft takes place.
Tomorrow, I will release the second version of the 2025 WNBA Mock Draft and then on Jan. 25th, release the first ever version of the 2026 WNBA Mock Draft.

I’ve followed womens basketball decently over the past decade or so. When is the last time that we’ve had star power at the top like that?
Three #1 pick type of ladies.
The 2013 draft. Elena Delle Donne, Skylar Diggins-Smith and Brittney Griner.
Thanks! I couldn’t remember if Skylar and Brittney were in the same draft. Good one.
Would you rate 2024 higher?
Did Paige Robinson of Illinois State receive any consideration?
No, not by me. She was put in the 2023 official list by the WNBA for players to declare. You can read it here. https://www.wnba.com/news/2023-wnba-draft-eligible-candidates/
