2012 NBA Draft

The 2012 NBA Draft is coming up in a couple of months, June 28 is the date it will happen. Okay so we still have a couple of months to go but I want to give you guys a heads-up on which players are likely to be drafted. Here is a rundown of the top players in each position and where they currently play:

1. Andre Drummond, University of Connecticut
2. Cody Zeller, Indiana
3. Tyler Zeller, North Carolina
4. Meyers Leonard, Illinois
5. Patric Young, Florida

Power Forward:
1. Anthony Davis, Kentucky
2. Thomas Robinson, Kansas
3. Jared Sullinger, Ohio State
4. Perry Jones, Baylor
5. John Henson, North Carolina

Small Forward:
1. Harrison Barnes, North Carolina
2. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kentucky
3. Terrence Jones, Kentucky
4. Quincy Miller, Baylor
5. Jeffery Taylor, Vanderbilt

Shooting Guard:
1. Bradley Beal, Florida
2. Jeremy Lamb, Connecticut
3. Austin Rivers, Duke
4. Terrence Ross, Washington
5. Dion Waiters, Syracuse

Point Guard:
1. Kendall Marshall, North Carolina
2. Marquis Teague, Kentucky
3. Tony Wroten, Washington
4. Damian Lillard, Weber State
5. Tyshawn Taylor, Kansas

Well that’s the rundown for the 2012 NBA Draft each position. You can find out more about each player at Swish Scout. They are all pretty good players. Tony Wroten, number 3 in point guard, has received a lot of praise. He stands at 6’5″ 200 lbs., which is taller and bigger than Derrick Rose. 6’5″ is pretty good-sized for a point guard. The main area this guy needs to improve on is his 3-point shooting. This guy is a great passer though; and despite his lack of quickness, he is pretty athletic and has incredible jumping ability. He struggles a bit at the line, and occasionally with his jump shot; so there is room for improvement.

I think it is safe to say that we are going to be seeing Tony doing some pretty cool stuff when he gets drafted. Who knows, maybe the Heat will draft him! Now wouldn’t that be great. Share your thoughts about the 2012 NBA Draft.
