DraftExpress doesn’t have Maryland’s Melo Trimble in its 2017 NBA mock draft

Entering his third offseason with the Maryland basketball program, Melo Trimble’s draft stock is lower than ever.

Trimble is No. 91 on DraftExpress’s latest list of 100 NBA Draft prospects and isn’t in the site’s 2017 mock draft, a stark departure from where he was at this point last year. Maryland’s star guard was projected as a second-round pick when he declared for the draft following the 2016 season, then slipped out of the projections entirely after a poor showing at the combine.

This year, Trimble will be at the combine trying to make an uphill climb. He’ll have to prove to scouts that he’s improved upon the things that made them say he needed to go back to school a year ago.

He hasn’t officially declared for the draft this time around, but you can expect that announcement any day now. Because he can still return to college as long as he doesn’t sign an agent, he has no reason not to at least test the waters again.
