2021 WNBA Mock Draft Roundup: April 2

**DISCLAIMER: The following is an aggregate of player analysis from various media outlets and does not reflect the views of the Minnesota Lynx.**

The NCAA Women’s Final Four takes place this weekend in San Antonio, and WNBA Draft 2021 is less than two weeks away.

Here are the prospects that experts in the media have the Minnesota Lynx taking with the No. 9 overall pick on April 15…

ESPN.COM – PF Jasmine Walker, Alabama:

“At 6-3, Walker brings a strong 3-point shooting touch to the forward position. She helped lead the Crimson Tide to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 1999, and Alabama won its first-round game against North Carolina. The Tide came up against the Maryland buzz saw in the second round and were eliminated 100-64. In the two games, Walker totaled 36 points and 16 rebounds, and she averaged 19.1 PPG and 9.4 RPG this season. She made 78 of 196 attempts from behind the arc (39.8%), and could be a good fit for Minnesota.” —  Mechelle Voepel

WINSIDR – PG Aari McDonald, Arizona:

“The Lynx had been a little light on players with some major burst to get in the lane and collapse the defense. McDonald would join 2021 signee Aerial Powers to help out in that regard. Playing with a stretch big like Damiris Dantas and surrounded by a strong group of 3-point shooters, McDonald’s quickness would consistently force defenses into some very difficult decisions.” — Ben Dull

Chicago Sun Times – PF Natasha Mack, Oklahoma State:

“Mack is one of the best defenders in college basketball, having led the nation this past season in blocked shots with 4.1 per game. The former junior college star also averaged 20 points and 12.4 rebounds and had the second-most double-doubles in the country with 18.”  — Madeline Kenney
