The first day of the 2024 NBA Draft is in the books and the final day is bearing down upon us. We saw surprises — trade-ups, trade-backs, risers, fallers — and now we’re expecting more of the same as we wrap up this year’s draft on Thursday.

But before we put a bow on this year, we’re taking advantage of the two-day format to reset the tables and project out a fresh mock for how things might go on the second day. Several surprises on the first day — Dalton Knecht falling to No. 17, Pacome Dadiet at No. 25, Dillon Jones at No. 26 — left us with unexpected fallers who will have to wait another day to hear their name called in Brooklyn.

Those names include several former five-star recruits and McDonald’s All-Americans — led by former Duke star Kyle Filipowski and former Kentucky one-and-done Justin Edwards. We’re not expecting them to have to wait long on Thursday to be selected, though, with Edwards, Filipowski and fellow blueblood product Johnny Furphy all likely to go off the board relatively soon after the resumption of the draft at 5 p.m. ET Thursday.

Let’s dive in.
