Who is on your personal Draft Board this year?

I know this isn't exactly a year where we are drafting at a spot to get excited about, but I put together a tool to get more familiar with the players that are available in this year's draft and where you can create a team draft board to organize the players in the draft you have your eye on.

Sometimes you'll hear that an NBA team had a "draft board" that they used as the draft progressed to help them keep straight the players that have the most value to them. The tool I put on this page (http://www.arizonatribe.com/suns) is intended to help out in those areas whether just to learn more about the potential draftees or to assemble a draft board or even a comprehensive mock draft.

When sifting through the 80+ players you can sort and filter by name, height, weight, wingspan, and position. And as you select a player the meaningful measurements, links (ESPN stats, draftexpress.com and nbadraft.net scouting profiles) and embedded youtube clips populate so you can have the most information on that player possible without having to run around different sites looking for highlights and basic info.

Your draft board (or mock draft if you want to do the whole thing) is created in html code that you can post into a message board. Below the textbox with the code for the draft board you created there is a checkbox for Blockquote (SBNation.com) which will format the code to be dropped onto a reply for a FanPost on BrightSideOfTheSun. There's also a checkbox that will include youtube links for the players on your list so that others who check out your list can go right to the good stuff if they're unfamiliar with the player on your list.

Optionally, you can also use the player qualities checkboxes to throw in all the abbreviations for the basketball-related qualities you see in that player that made you decide to put them on your board.

Again, I understand this isn't exactly a year for Suns fans to be excited about the draft and that not everyone is a super draft nerd, but hopefully this can help you learn about different draftable players in the next week before the draft.
