The 2022 NBA Draft is here, but its mysteries have not been solved yet. The mock drafts are submitted, some consensuses have been formed and the fan overreactions already are starting.

Follow along here and watch our NBA Draft coverage for free all night on CBS Sports HQ here and in the video player on this page.

2022 NBA Draft First RoundGrades by Gary Parrish

1. Orlando Magic: PF Paolo Banchero, Duke

Even though I would have taken Chet Holmgren, I can’t say it’s wrong to take Banchero. I think he’s going to be the most impactful player right from the jump and the favorite to win Rookie of the Year. This is sensible, if surprising. He’s a big, strong and skilled forward who could be an incredible building block in Orlando. Grade: A

2. Oklahoma City Thunder: C Chet Holmgren, Gonzaga

The concerns about Holmgren’s slight frame are legitimate — but he’s such a unique prospect with incredible potential that he’s the right pick here. This 7-foot rim-protector who can also bounce it like a guard and reliably make 3-pointers. He has the highest ceiling in this draft and, for that reason, should go no lower than here. Grade: A+
