As the NBA draft lottery concluded, predictions about where many players would land started to come to fruition, including Gonzaga's Zach Collins and Nigel Williams-Goss.

CBS Sports' Gary Parish: 12th overall, Detroit Pistions

Nigel Williams-Goss

Williams-Goss was a leader on the floor, leading Gonzaga in points per game and steals. Along with his success at Gonzaga, Williams-Goss also ran the lane agility test in 10.42 seconds, which was the fastest time at the NBA combine. Williams-Goss scored in the double digits twenty times this season and also shot a West Coast Conference-best 65-percent from the floor.
