I though I'd start a discussion on the selections made by various "Mockers".
Chad Ford, the man everyones seems to polarize has updated his mock draft (on version 2.0).
1) Charlotte | Anthony Davis PF
2) Washington | Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF
3) New Orleans | Thomas Robinson PF
4) Portland (via NJ) | Bradley Beal SG
5) Toronto | Andre Drummond C
Analysis: The Raptors have been looking for a legit small forward for the past several years and Harrison Barnes would be a perfect fit. However, after Barnes' struggles this past weekend against Ohio and Kansas, the Raptors may want to take another look to see if he still has the upside we all thought he did coming out of high school.
Drummond has been a disappointment, too, but if you are going to miss, you probably ought to miss big. Pairing him in a frontcourt with last year's lottery pick, Jonas Valanciunas, could finally make Andrea Bargnani expendable.
Holy crap, the last thing we need is another front court player. This teams needs more wing talent! What an idiot! I really don't think he does much in the way of analysis on team needs, and is married to ranking talent. I realize that the Raps should always take the best talent available but Drummond? You'd have to take Barnes in this situation.
