Combo forwards

If there is a place for a combo guard in the league then why not a combo forward like Draymond Green? Right now he is a borderline first round pick. If he does well he could go mid first round or late lottery. He could be too good to pass up even if he is projected as more of a bench player (6th man). I can see him being a bigger version of James Harden off the bench.

I see Royce White going in the second round (the second round will be about need). Not bad size for a four man and he can do some other things. Maybe not a prototype power forward but he should help a roster.

CJ Leslie is a second round guy who can play his way into the late first round I think, depending on how he, and NC State, does this weekend. Lacks true power forward size but he can play. Similar to Terrence Jones (a stretch four, also) but with a better motor. He would be a bit of a stretch to get picked in the late first round but he would be a great value pick in the late 2nd round.

All three of these guys can be considered tweeners, or combo forwards. If combo guards are big now, combo forwards might be big in the future. A guy like Green can rebound, pass, and score with solid shooting range and he can facilitate the offense. He would be a big small forward like a Thaddeus Young or he could play the "stretch four" spot if his team decided to go small.

I think Draymond Green would be a great fit for the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Heat. For the Thunder he could be their new "do everything" sixth man and would allow Harden to start. He also has the size and smarts to post up and would give the Thunder a solid low post option. ... for the Heat he could also be an ideal sixth man and could fill in for LeBron at the 3 or Bosh at the 4. Or, they could go small with a Wade and Chalmers/Cole back court and a LeBron, Green, and Bosh front line. Chicago could also use him too as a backup for Luol Deng and another playmaker to go along with Derrick Rose.

Herb Pope

Ha! I've probably seen this guy play more than most people on this site. This guy is not a Small Forward. You can tell just by looking at him or just by looking at his stats. Sure, he can step out and hit a three now and then, but he is too bulky (fat) to guard a 3. He rebounds great so he is most definitely a 4.

I'm a HUGE UVA fan; my first

I'm a HUGE UVA fan; my first thread was talking about how underrated Mike Scott was when he wasn't on the big board or the mock. With that being said, Mike Scott is no tweener, he is definitely a power forward, albeit an undersized when in the NBA. He'll probably be a mid-late 2nd rounder, even though I think he should go slightly higher because he has one of the most refined all-around offensive games in terms of scoring of any PF in the nation.
