WNBA Draft: Stanford's Pohlen and Pedersen Could Go in First Round

Jeanette Pohlen and Kayla Pedersen will learn where they will commence their professional basketball careers today at 12 p.m. PST, when the WNBA holds its entry draft live on ESPN. C&R have provided an excellent roundup of the various WNBA mock drafts, while the Daily Axe imagines the possibility of Stanford's two senior standouts being reunited in Minnesota with Candice Wiggins and Maya Moore, the projected No. 1 overall pick. The Lynx hold the 1st, 4th, 13th, and 14th picks in the draft.

There's a decent chance that both Pedersen and Pohlen will be taken in the first round. Pedersen is considered the surer bet to be taken among the first 12 picks, with one mock draft projecting her to go as high as fourth overall. Hit the jump for a list of all 18 Stanford players selected in the WNBA draft.
