Take a look at some of the best small forwards that will be available for the NBA Draft 2017. Josh Jackson, Jason Tatum, Jonathan Isaac and Justin Jackson are some of the most talented players at the small forward position.

The top prospects

Josh Jackson – Kansas, 6 ft 8 in, 207 lbs, 20-years-old

Josh Jackson is one of the most talented players in the draft. His defensive skills are amazing, as he could become a true defensive leader for an NBA team in the future. But, he is not only a defensive machine.

Jackson also possesses some great offensive skills, including assisting and shooting the ball. He was shooting around 50 percent from the three point line in his last 17 NCAA games. So, Josh Jackson could be a great pick up, with potential on both ends of the floor.

Jayson Tatum – Duke, 6 ft 8 in, 205 lbs, 19-years-old

Just like Josh Jackson, Jason Tatum is a natural talent. He may not possess all of the defensive qualities that Jackson does, but Tatum is a real shooter. He could become the first scoring option for most teams, as he can score from any position on the floor.

Jonathan Isaac – Florida State, 6 ft 10 in, 210 lbs, 19-years-old

He has potential, but could also be a high-risk pick. He could become an All Star player that dominates the game on both ends, but he could also become a bust. However, Isaac will probably be drafted somewhere in the top 10.

Justin Jackson – North Carolina, 6 ft 8 in, 210 lbs, 22-years-old

Justin Jackson was the best player on the best team in the NCAA, so there is no doubt that he is ready for the NBA. His physical strength is not ideal, but he is a great team player, he's got a big wingspan, and an outstanding basketball IQ. Jackson will probably become a role player off the bench.

The others

Ogugua Anunoby – Indiana, 6 ft 8 in, 235 lbs, 19-years-old

Meet the beast from England – Ogugua Anunoby. This guy has a longer wingspan than Giannis Antetokounmpo. He is strong, powerful, and will likely grow into the role of anchoring a defense, however, his offensive abilities are limited for now.

Dillon Brooks – Oregon, 6 ft 7 in, 220 lbs, 21-years-old

Brooks is mentally strong and a good shooter with great vision and high basketball IQ. He is not the best on defense, but there is definitely room for the improvement.

Brooks could be a potential steal.

Sterling Brown – SMU, 6 ft 6 in, 230 lbs, 22-years-old

Sterling is the younger brother of former NBA player Shannon Brown. He is one of the best shooters in this draft and could become a great role player.
