There's no shortage of young talent in the 2022 NBA Draft, and that includes Memphis Tigers prospect Jalen Duren. Duren figures to be taken during the first round on draft night.

Here's everything you need to know about Duren ahead of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Jalen Duren NBA Draft Stock & Projection

Round 1
- San Antonio Spurs (No. 9) - 2
- Chicago Bulls (No. 18) - 1

Two of the three highlighted mock drafts have Duren listed as a top-10 pick, with both of those experts having him go to the San Antonio Spurs at No. 9. The Spurs have two centers under contract next season — Jakob Poeltl and Zach Collins — but neither of them is a player that you'd build a team around. Taking Duren with the ninth overall pick would solve that issue by bringing in a prospect with some serious upside.

Jalen Duren Stats

2021-22 Memphis Tigers (Freshman)
- 12.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.8 steals, 2.1 blocks, 2.2 turnovers, 0.0 3-pointers, 25.3 minutes per game. 59.7% field goal, 0.0% 3-point shooting.

Duren was a paint presence in his lone season with the Tigers, leading the AAC when it comes to rebounds (8.1) and blocks (2.1) per game. His 79 personal fouls (No. 12) show that he could work on his discipline, but, other than that, the future is looking very bright for Duren, regardless of where he ends up.
