We've reached the stretch run of the NBA Draft process. The withdrawal deadline is behind us, the lottery and Combine are complete, and pre-draft prep for teams via interviews and workouts are nearly finished. Nearly. 

But with just over one week until the draft, there's still much prognostication to be done. Which means it's time to fully lean into our mock and project -- for the first time all cycle -- what we think teams will do now that we have a full picture of the class by taking into account fit, talent, rumored landing spots and more.

This version of our NBA Mock Draft below is our most extensive to date, featuring all 58 picks (that's right: 58, not 60 due to Miami and Milwaukee forfeiting their second-round picks) for the 2022 NBA Draft. It also accounts primarily for team need, in contrast to our Big Board Top 100 rankings. The mock below is comprised almost exclusively based on what we think teams will do -- not what we would do.

You'll notice below the top of the order has mostly stagnated with Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero and Jaden Ivey -- the top four players in the class -- falling into order Nos. 1-4. At No. 5 is where the draft gets fun, though, and with the Pistons picking, we're projecting a new name there. As a result, Shaedon Sharpe, the mystery man who we once projected at No. 5, slips a bit as teams continue to dig into his game after not seeing him in a competitive environment all last season. Sticking with the theme surrounding Sharpe the last few months, he remains one of the draft's most polarizing talents. Seeing him go top five or falling out of the top 10 both seem reasonable draft night outcomes. We've split the difference below.

There's valid concerns over the diversity with which Smith will score in the NBA -- he struggled at the rim in college and primarily was used as a catch-and-shoot weapon -- but his positional size and above average shooting are among the most translatable skills a prospect has in this class. At 6-foot-10 he's an elite shooting threat from anywhere on the court and a very safe bet to be a valuable two-way player in the NBA.

The skinny frame and potential injury concerns that come along with it notwithstanding, Holmgren arguably holds the most star power in the draft. He rated in the 94th percentile as a defender around the rim last season and had a top-10 block rate. On offense, he rated in the 99th percentile around the rim. His ability to affect and block shots can make him a cornerstone defensive anchor for a rebooting OKC franchise.

Mathurin's somewhat unfairly been boxed into a 3-and-D type prospect, but he's so much more than that. Yes, he's a great knockdown shooter, and his length suggests in time he'll be a plus-defender.

There's no doubt Sharpe has an incredible pedigree -- he was the No. 1 recruit in his class before enrolling at Kentucky -- but he comes with some risk, too, reflected here with a drop to No. 10. We haven't seen him in a competitive environment since he played on the EYBL circuit and there's a ton of mystery surrounding him. That said, at No. 10, the downtrodden Wizards would be wise to take the gamble on his star potential. Chances he's still on the board here are pretty low, but as the draft approaches it does feel as if his stock is slipping a tad.

Charlotte skipped addressing the center position in Round 1 but gets a Round 1 talent at the position here at No. 45 overall. He is a top-30 prospect in my latest Big Board and someone whose playmaking and shooting at his size make him a legitimate frontcourt option for teams to consider late in the first round.

Barlow emerged as a potential first-round talent after a strong season playing with Overtime Elite in its inaugural season. The 6-9 forward is an explosive athlete who can shoot and space the floor. Has a chance to be a stretch-four type NBA talent because of his length and 7-1 wingspan.

A year ago at this time, Juzang was considered a borderline first-rounder after leading UCLA to an unlikely run to the Final Four. His stock has cooled a bit, but his talent as a tough shot taker and maker has not. Love his production and toughness I saw in college and think his game has some shades of current Grizzlies star Dillon Brooks to it.

Besson is a 21-year-old product from the NBL whose offensive arsenal alone may be enough to get him drafted. Crafty off the bounce, good shooter, knows how to dictate pace. Needs to improve his outside shot and decision-making but he plays a style that's conducive to winning in the NBA in the right situation.

Purely a gamble on talent here. Watson really struggled to find a role for himself at UCLA last season but the former five-star recruit has good positional length and athleticism to possibly develop in time into an NBA contributor. Some time in the G League developing will be a necessity, but the Kings aren't exactly in win-now mode.

Ellis is a slasher who dives to the hoop, creates offense and pounds the glass at a high level for a guard. Not much of a playmaker for others, but he knows how to separate and get himself looks with solid touch around the basket. Could be an off-the-bench microwave scorer.

More guard depth for Golden State. Nembhard had a few really solid seasons as a distributor in college both at Gonzaga and at Florida, and the improvement of his outside shot no longer makes him a one-dimensional threat. Willing passer who showed he can score it in a variety of ways.

Would have liked to see Mohammed return for another season in college, but the former five-star recruit showed flashes at Georgetown that were promising enough to get him drafted. Good rebounder for his size and a fearless shot-taker, though he needs to improve his outside shot.

Davison is a former five-star recruit and arguably the most athletic guard prospect in the class, which could make a bet for the Wizards on him here at 54 palatable. He didn't shoot it well at Alabama and was a turnover machine, but the pedigree and leaping ability is intriguing.

One of the most electric talents in the draft, Kamagate is also very raw. He's a great leaper who can play above the rim as a lob threat and shot blocker but doesn't play with much feel and needs to fine-tune some of the finer points of his game to become an NBA contributor.

Long wing with great shooting touch. Procida in Lega Serie A last season hit 38.3% from 3-point range and showed versatility running the offense as a pick-and-roll threat. He'll be a catch-and-shoot type option in the NBA with his size and shooting.

Foster has done well for himself the last few months by trimming down and showing up to the combine in fantastic shape after producing at a high level with G League Ignite. The former five-star recruit is a tough player in the post who has been productive at every level. Plays with a high motor and continues to show improvement as a prospect.

Williams is a late bloomer who had three different college stops before acquitting himself as a potential NBA prospect last season at Texas Tech. He's a great athlete who can play above the rim and knock down 3-pointers.
