Here is a look at some mock projections along with info on each player on the day of the 2013 NBA Draft.
Lorenzo Brown: "My freshman year was tough for me. The team struggled, but when coach Gottfried got here he put the ball in my hands and gave me the opportunity to lead this team.
"I feel like I did a pretty good job of that over the last two years. Hopefully I can do that on the next level."
Mark Gottfried On Brown: "I'm proud of Lorenzo... I'm excited for him.
"I personally believe he's got a great future in the NBA and I support him 100%. I've enjoyed coaching him. When I took the job there was uncertainty here, he stepped into the role to be our point guard and he's learned, he's grown, and he's got better."
C.J. Leslie: "I pattern myself after guys like Rudy Gay and Paul George. Point forwards and combo guards. I don't want to be a 3 full time. I want to play both forward spots and just be a basketball player, wherever I'm needed. That's important to me.
"I'm a good shooter. I just need get more confidence during the game, taking those types of shots. I didn't really shoot much at the college level, so I just want to improve in that area."
Mark Gottfried On Leslie: "Over the last two years there has been a lot of discussion in regard to him and what guys think of him at the next level. I do know there is a lot of people in the NBA that likes his future.
"A lot will depend on how he does in the workouts leading up to the draft, but the general consensus is there's no doubt that he's going to be a good player in the NBA.
"He has a strong likelihood of being in the first round... a lot is going to happen between now and June. He's going to approach it in the right way, get himself prepared and ready to go."
He led the ACC in rebounding with 10.7 boards per game and was one of two players in the league to average a double-double this season with 12.7 points per contest. He is one of four BCS players to average a double-double in conference play and his 17 double-doubles are the most since Tommy Burleson had 19 in 1972-73.
Mark Gottfried On Howell: "I think Richard can play in the NBA. He brings something to a team that not a lot of guys do, which is rebound the ball every single night.
"Someone might say, well if Richard was 6'9, he might be able to. I don't care if he's 6'2, he does it every night. I look around the NBA at Kenneth Faried, Reggie Evans, and Chuck Hayes, and Richard Howell, you know what you're going to get with him. If he's on your team, there's not a lot of surprises."
He averaged 12.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game as senior while shooting a blistering 44.1% from 3-point range. He averaged 3 made 3-pointers per game.
He ended his career at NC State as the school's all-time leader in 3-pointers made, career starts, and career free throw percentage.
Wood wasn't listed in any of the mock drafts below, and he is expected to be an undrafted free agent. However, he has reportedly worked out for Charlotte and Atlanta among others.
