I'll gladly take any feedback whether it be positive or negative. Who do i got too high? Who do i got too low?
My comments won't work right now but i am hesitant to put Ed Davis and Eric Bledsoe as high as I did. Also I think I might have Gordon Hayward and Daniel Orton too low. Lemme know what you guys think
Davis is too high Detroit has Austin Daye who is another skinny forward and some Euro dude
I was told by people Aldrich may not get picked by Jazz but I have him currently on my mock too so I can't hate
I don't see New Orleans grabbing a replacement of back up for David West when West is a solid bargain as an All star and they have Digou as bk up when healthy whose game is close to Pattersons
Memphis only takes Babbitt if they are letting Gay go and still George may be a better option.
Houston taking Bradley seems iffy unless they trade him. Houston is stacked at guards and are more likely to find a bk up for Ming like Orton or take best player available and I don't know if Bradley is best player available
OKC could take Orton but I am still kind of going back and forth on that one but if he is there that would be a steal so good move
Atl does not really need another point guard. They have Teague and Bibby for about 2 more years
You are really high on Booker but I doubt OKC takes two undersized bigs when they have a ton of them already. I am thinking if they take a big it will be someone that is big.
Your New York picks are not very good.
Here is my mock so you dont think i was hammering at you
Your mock is decent, it will help me complete my final mock
Davis is too high. Detroit is looking for a center. I have heard that they are not too high on Aldrich so they might be willing to trade down to get Whiteside or trade up to get Cousins. Unless by some miracle Cousins falls to 7th.
Jazz want Udoh, Aldrich is second in my mind and then comes Monroe. Udoh plays great defense, is ready to contribute right away, and he is a tall powerforward. Only 6'10 but plays like he is 6'11 because of his jumping and blocking ability.
Johnson to the Wolves, this is very plausible but Brewer was doing so well this year. He has improved a lot. Do you really Minny will risk his further development and bring in another small forward that would compete for the starting 3?? I think the guy for them is Cousins, they may already have Love and Jefferson, but that duo is not working out too well. So why not Jefferson elsewhere and then draft Cousins to replace him.
Sacramento does not like taking risks. Cousins is definitely a risk this is where I would put Monroe or Johnson. Probably Johnson because Casspi, Garcia, or Greene have not fully gained the starting job but Johnson might be battling for playing time with those 3 already there. Monroe might be the better choice then.
The Hornets already have Okafor, why would they get another power forward with Patterson. I think they might want to try and hit the home run and pick Whiteside. (i said might that does not mean that selecting Whiteside would be hitting the home run, we wont know until someone tries, and I think New Orleans might be willing to do so, but Toronto would be my second guess.)
Bradley is way too high. He is not worthy of a lottery pick in my opinion. I have him going to Miami at 18 but even that is pushing it to me. Houston needs a center with Yao and his injury problems. 14 may be late for one, so they might try and draft the replacement for Scola since he is getting a little old and might go somewhere else soon. His replacement would be Montiejunas. This is Scola's last year on his contract.
Both Robinson and Ebanks are too low. Both are very talented defenders which may bump them up to a mid first rounder. Earlier this year Ebanks was a lottery pick so I don't think he has moved that far out of the lottery. In my Robinson is the only worthy of late first round pick. But maybe borderline at 25
Memphis is high on Babbitt right now so you have that pick right. I think Hayward is in the right spot. I have heard the Spurs are high on Favors and want to trade with New Jersey in order to get that third pick but that might not happen, so they might draft Orton to compensate for what Favors would bring. But also OKC is high on Orton so he would get picked at 21 if he is available. Rest looks fine.
naw i appreciate the feedback sheltwon. to defend my picks that you questioned:
-i think detroit is going with a big but i can't figure out who to plug in there if monroe and cousins are off the board. i think davis is the next best 4 available so that's why i got him there
-i had new orleans taking paul george but then i read this article: http://www.hornets247.com/journals/2010/06/04/hornets-will-draft-one-of-...
basically it says their management is really high on patterson and loved him when they brought him in for an interview. granted this is a blog so i don't know how much stock to put in it
-i have been hearing all along that babbit is thought of very highly in the memphis organization. i think ultimately george is the better prospect but i think memphis will be lookin to grab babbit
-i struggled between orton and bradley for houston. you could make a case for both players but it just seems like bradley is a guy the rockets would love. with kevin martin at the two they could probably use a solid defensive backup to him. bradley could be that guy
-and i haven't really researched the 2nd round much yet so those picks weren't necessarily in any sort of order i just kind of randomly put them on there. but i do like trevor booker a lot and think he'll be a solid performer
and to wesmathews
-i think udoh could definitely go to utah. i had him there earlier but ultimately put aldrich there because honestly the dude just looks like he belongs in utah. plays a type of game that sloan could maximize i think.
-i don't think there's anyway sacramento will pass up cousins. they got two guys their organization loves in carl landry and jason thompson at the four. i think ultimately they look for a low post scoring threat to team with tyreke.
-hornets may definitely look at whiteside. probably will be similar to chandler eventually.
-i think houston wants to get another 4. montejunas would have been a perfect fit but he just pulled outta the draft the other day.
-i think as far as best players ebanks and robinson are probably top 25, but not many teams in the 20s are looking for a small forward i think
THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK FELLAS
