Although the 2019 draft was less then a year ago, I thought it would be cool to redraft it, and see which player would go to what team. This draft will mostly be based on potential, but some weight will be put on their current play. I will also be drafting based on team need, so this will be less of a ranking and more of an actual draft. If you want to see the video on YouTube click Here.
