NBA Draft steals can be born in the NCAA Tournament. Here is a look at four players to watch because the Dallas Mavericks could target them in round two.

NBA Draft 2019 is still a few months away, but the time to watch the prospects play is now. March and all of its madness has finally arrived. The opening week of the NCAA Tournament is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times for sports fans.

The Big Dance always offers basketball junkies an opportunity to see more basketball than maybe even they can handle. It is simply fantastic. It’s like Thanksgiving for foodies or Harry Potter marathons for people who dig movie franchises. The games just keep coming during the opening weekend. It is a treat for even the casual fan.

But also, for draft nerds like me, it’s a chance to see some of the best prospects in the world matchup against each other. There are certain insights you gain from seeing the best against the best that you can’t always get from regular season play.
