March Madness is here.

While you’re rooting for Rhode Island to upset it’s way to the Elite Eight and win you the office pool, there are NBA draft prospects you should be keeping an eye on. A strong NCAA Tournament can sometimes get a GM (or owner) to move a guy up and down the draft board more than they should — a strong tournament can boost draft stock. (Although, it should be noted, not with the best organizations.)

College Basketball Talk’s Rob Dauster joins NBC’s Kurt Helin to break down the NCAA Tournament with an NBA eye. We talk about Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson and other elites, as well as some sleepers down the board. Plus, we give some picks — I have North Carolina winning it all — and discuss things like Can Gonzaga actually win this thing?
