A few national writers are saying Nerlens Noel's season-ending torn ACL is not likely to affect the Kentucky freshman's NBA Draft stock much.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel was projected as the top pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. That was before Noel suffered a season-ending torn ACL during UK's loss to Florida Tuesday.

However, the injury may not knock Noel out of being a top-five selection.

The Louisville Courier-Journal's Kyle Tucker talked to a couple NBA Draft experts who say they expect to Noel to still go high in the draft, should he choose to enter.

A Sports Illustrated columnist writes Noel should turn pro rather than return to UK for his sophomore season.
