Leading up to last year’s draft, the majority of the “draft experts” were sure that the Suns would take Brandon Rush out of Kansas with the 15th overall selection. Much to their surprise, the predictions were all incorrect except for the Sporting News and The Arizona Republic's Paul Coro - who in their infinite wisdom - prophesized accurately that the Suns would choose Robin Lopez.

This year the draft is even less certain because after the first three picks, it's hit or miss where each prospect will land.

Here's what some sports websites and publications are predicting in terms of Phoenix's possible draft night selections. James Johnson (PF 6-8, 258 lbs. Wake Forest) Brandon Jennings (PG 6-2, 165 lbs. Italy)

College Tyreke Evans (PG 6-5, 220 lbs. Memphis)
