The Storm has the No. 6 overall pick in the WNBA draft on Monday. Headliners Brittney Griner, Elena Delle Donne and Skylar Diggins will be long gone, but here are some picks Seattle could make who also have star power.

C Kelsey Bone

6-4, Texas A&M

Played three years due to NCAA transfer rules, but as a traditional post player who can score on the block, is an easy pick. Averaged 14.2 points on 51.4 percent shooting from the field and 8.4 rebounds in her career.

F Tianna Hawkins

6-3, Maryland

In a physical Atlantic Coast Conference, finished with 1,086 career rebounds and led in scoring her senior year (18 points per game). Versatility inside would be an asset.

G Tayler Hill

5-10, Ohio State

Played the Big Ten season with strep throat (got her tonsils removed after the season), but still averaged a career-high 21.1 points, shooting 31.7 from three-point range.

C Kayla Alexander

6-4, Syracuse

Developed into a strong scorer inside who's not afraid to get physical. Ranked ninth in the nation in blocks (2.9) and averaged 17.9 points on 51.8-percent shooting as a senior.

G Kelly Faris

5-11, Connecticut

Offensive game didn't emerge until senior season, but hounding defensive style makes Faris enticing. Ranks fifth in career steals at UConn (289) and shot 39.6 percent from three-point range as a senior.

G Sugar Rodgers

5-11, Georgetown

Instant offense and durability. Ranked fourth in the nation in scoring (22.9 points) as a senior and is a career 32.3-percent shooter from three-point range.
