Take a look at some of the best power forwards that will be available for the NBA Draft 2017. John Collins, Zach Collins, Semi Ojeleye and Caleb Swanigan are some of the most talented players at the power forward position.

The top prospects

John Collins - Wake Forest, 6 ft 10 in, 230 lbs, 19 years old

John Collins is one of the old-school power forwards, who has not great shooting skills, but he showed an amazing potential last season.

He almost averaged 20 points and ten rebounds. However, if he is about to become an elite NBA player, he needs to improve his outside shooting and a defensive game.

Zach Collins - Gonzaga, 7 ft 0 in, 230 lbs, 19 years old

Zach is one of the most wanted players in this draft class. He has all predispositions to become a great player. Collins is active at the rim, valuable on both ends of the floor and a very solid shooter.

He is definitely a great prospect, but not quite ready for the NBA. So, whoever picks him needs to be patient.

Semi Ojeleye - SMU, 6 ft 7 in, 235 lbs, 22 years old

Semi is a player with the great physical attributes and solid shooting skills. He is not projected for the TOP 20 in this draft, but he could definitely become a great player and he is possibly a steal of this draft.

Lauri Markkanen - Arizona, 7 ft 0 in, 240 lbs, 20 years old

Markkanen has already been compared with Kristaps Porzingis or Dirk Nowitzki.

Well, he is a tall European player with a great shooting touch, so it's not a surprise. He is only a great shooter for now, but his potential is very high. Markkanen is projected as a TOP 10 pick.

Caleb Swanigan - Purdue, 6 ft 10 in, 247 lbs, 20 years old

Swanigan was one of the best players at the college this season and he is definitely one of the most talented players in the draft. Last year he was undrafted, but now that won't be an option. Expect him on the TOP 10 position.

The others

Jonah Bolden - Serbia, 6 ft 10 in, 215 lbs, 21 years old

Bolden received the ABA League Top Prospect Award, just like Dario Saric and Nikola Jokic a few years ago, so there is definitely some talent in this guy. He is projected in the second round but could be picked earlier.

Jordan Bell - Oregon, 6 ft 9 in, 225 lbs, 22 years old

Jordan Bell is a defensive machine, but he is very limited offensively at the moment.

Could be picked later in the first round.

Cameron Oliver - Nevada, 6 ft 8 in, 225 lbs, 21 years old

Oliver's biggest problems are the lack of physical attributes and low basketball IQ. However, he has a big wingspan and he can dunk the ball strongly. Cameron Oliver is not much more than a unexceptional dunker.
