    Default 2012 Raptors Republic Mock Draft: Fan Edition - 2nd Overall Pick

    Raptors Republic voted (in a no-brainer move, mind you), Anthony Davis as the #1 pick in the 2012 Raptors Republic Mock Draft.
    Now it gets interesting from here. The Charlotte Bobcats on the clock. Which way will they go? They were able to snag both Bismack Biyombo and NCAA champ and hero, Kemba Walker in last year's draft - both were RR darlings to a lot of people. The Cats are in a mess and can go in a lot of directions.

    Raptors Republic, who do you think the Charlotte Bobcats will take with the #2 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft?

    Beal or MKG are the obvious options, but I think Barnes could be a wild card here if he has really strong workouts, especially with the UNC connection with Jordan. Biyombo is the defensive anchor, Walker is the PG, so Barnes could be their scorer. If MKG shoots well enough, I think he will be the pick, but Barnes could be this year's shocker.

    I think they go with Robinson, there is a boat load of 2's and 3's projected in next years first round, they don't need to reach for one at #2 this year.

    Charlotte had a guy like Wallace and gave him up. I don't see them going for MKG when his ceiling is Wallace. I'm voting Robinson.

    Robinson. Tyrus can become his extremely expensive backup..

    I feel like Beal, MKG, and Robinson are the best options, but I dont think they will take Beal until they see exactly what Walker can do. Two young guards in a back court, especially two focused on scoring does not seem like a great way go go.

    As great of a motor Robinson has, I just dont see as much room to grow as most people do. Also I am not sure how well a combo of Robinson and Bismack would work.

    I see MKG as the best fit for this year, until they can really see what would work well with Walker and Biyombo.

    I voted for Beal. I think MKG is to raw offensively to take with the second selection. They do have Henderson, but I think if Beal does well in work outs the Hall of Fame SG will not pass this guy up.

    I would be very surprised if they took Drummond, Jordan probably still has shell shock from the Kwame pick.

    I agree Robinson would also be a good pick.

    MKG.

    Team desperately needs a culture change.

    Voted MKG. He has a high ceiling, Charlotte probably shouldn't pass on it

    Robinson ... With Biyombo as the C of the future, they NEED some balance - and TRob has nice offensive skills.

    I chose MKG.

    Yes, he's far from a reliable perimeter scorer right now, but Charlotte is so far away from "contention", they can afford to bring him along slowly. He could [arguably] be the best player from this draft class in 4-5 years. Jordan's got to be thinking long-term here.

    Then again, there were rumblings that Charlotte would be looking to move the pick, so any selection they make, could in theory, be on behalf of another team (which throws our guess work out the window completely...lol).

    I chose Robinson. If the Raptors were there MKG. Both are leaders. MKG can defend multiple positions. With his work ethic and being just 18 he has much growth left in his game (his shot, ball handling).
