Best Players Available

Mock Drafts are fun to make and a good way of trying to forecast what will happen, but we usually have to take teams into account as far as need or want in a lot of cases. This is why I think making your own draft board would also be a fun way of doing things, as I am sure most of us think certain players are just straight up better than others regardless of where they were picked. I am going to make a Mel Kiper like draft board which has who I feel are the best players available (Jay Bilas does this as well, but his is most often awful, as I feel he is as a commentator). People can feel free to disagree and make their own, and hopefully we will have a better gauge for how we really feel about players in the draft. In this list I am just going off of who I think will potentially be the best players in this draft.

1. Blake Griffin
2. Brandon Jennings
3. James Harden
4. Tyreke Evans
5. Stephen Curry
6. Ricky Rubio
7. DeMar Derozan
8. Jonny Flynn
9. Jrue Holliday
10. DeJuan Blair
11. Hasheem Thabeet
12. Jordan Hill
13. Wayne Ellington
14. James Johnson
15. Earl Clark
16. Gerald Henderson
17. Ty Lawson
18. Omri Casspi
19. Terrence Williams
20. Patty Mills
21. Jeff Teague
22. Tyler Hansbrough
23. Eric Maynor
24. Victor Claver
25. Derrick Brown
26. Chase Budinger
27. DaJuan Summers
28. BJ Mullens
29. Rodrigue Beaubois
30. Taj Gibson

Well, was a quick list I made up, I am open to comments and comparisons.

LOL

Thanks everyone. Glad for the comments and input. Love how you guys go out on a line and are willing to make lists of your own. I appreciate being ranked below Chad Ford, that just splits my ego in three pieces. Seriously though, this is my list, I have my reasons. It is not a list of who will go where, but of who I think is going to be the best players in the draft. I may be wrong, but I am willing to go out on a line, which is apparently more than some people are willing to do. You are indeed entitled to your opinion, but it seems that no one was able to create a list of their own, hence I know no one else's opinion. If you were to criticize constructively, I would have no problem with it, but one sentence is hardly constructive. But, I had to laugh at your guys comments anyway, it is all good to me :)

Thank You

Birdman and yupyup, good job. It is not that hard to make a list, it is hard to make a list that pleases everyone. But I am pleased that you guys at least went out on a line and picked guys you thought were the best in the draft.
