Markelle Fultz is the early front-runner to be the top pick for the 2017 Draft. Many eyes will focus in on him to see if he can meet or exceed the lofty expectations that await him. With his size, athleticism, and skill level, he is projected to be a Kyrie Irving-type of point guard that could be a franchise-level player for an NBA team.
