It's NBA Draft day and UNC's Brice Johnson will be hoping to hear his name called in the first round of tonight's event. Here is the latest look at where the relevant mock drafts place him.

Mock Draft Date Pick Team 6/21
29th San Antonio
Draft Express 6/22 25th Los Angeles Clippers
CBS Sports(Parrish) 6/22 22nd Charlotte Hornets
CBS Sports(Vecenie) 6/14
27th Toronto Raptors
USA Today 6/13
27th Toronto Raptors
NBA Draft Net 6/23 25th Los Angeles Clippers
Sporting News 6/16 28th Phoenix Suns
ESPN 6/23 25th Los Angeles Clippers

Johnson's position in the various mock drafts has been all over the map but appears to be settling into the mid-to-late 20s. Three mock drafts including Draft Express and ESPN having him going to the Clippers. The highest position among these predictions in Charlotte at 22nd.

The biggest damper on Johnson's stock is his age. He is almost 22 years old which means he will slot behind some of the younger players in the draft.

As for Marcus Paige, he could hear his name called in the second round. Barring that, he will be an undrafted free agent and potentially can pick his best situation assuming there are multiple suitors. Paige's path to the NBA will likely be catching on with a team's summer league squad and going from there.
