Wizards expected to make Nyarko #1 pick
Despite an average combine, Nyarko's record over three years with the Hokies suggests a special talent, and it seems likely he will go first overall to the Wizards. Nyarko, a junior, scored 31 goals and added 24 assists in 57 games for Virginia Tech and finished as a M.A.C. Herman Trophy finalist. With Eddie Johnson seemingly on the brink of sealing a switch to Fulham, and the Wizards in full rebuilding mode after trading Nick Garcia and Jose Burciaga Jr. for draft picks, Nyarko is the logical choice at the top.
