How far will Randle fall in the draft?

Julius Randle entered his freshman season considered to be right there with Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins as one of the top three prospects in the 2014 NBA draft, but over the past six months or so that perception has changed.
With the help of advanced stats and analytics based on his one season at Kentucky, many draft experts now believe Randle may not even be the best power forward in this draft class, with that honor going to Indiana's Noah Vonleh.
And with Marcus Smart's draft stock on the rise -- the Oklahoma State point guard moved ahead of Randle on Chad Ford's updated Big Board -- the question heading into draft day may be how far Randle will fall.
