Thursday’s WNBA Draft features a deep and talented class. Although the 2016 class hasn’t been talked about much, the first round will have plenty of quality prospects to choose from.

More than a few of these soon-to-be-rookies are poised to make an immediate impact this season.

Though the WNBA calendar will be split in two due to the Olympics, it should be a fun year indeed.

1) Breanna Stewart, 21, Connecticut, Senior, 6-4, Forward

Picture 1 of 12

Stewart has won the Naismith Trophy, the Wade Trophy, the Wooden Award, is the AP Player of the Year, and she won both the Senior CLASS and the Ann Myers Drysdale Awards. She led the Connecticut Huskies to an NCAA program record 11th title last week, which was her fourth Championship win. ESPN has predicted she’ll be one of the WNBA’s top players this summer, as a rookie, and that’s not hard to imagine; Stewart has a complete game. She won’t have any trouble adjusting to the pros, because she already plays like one.
