Mock Jazz Draft Board

*** Another one from the saved draft archives. Looks like this one was before the 2011 draft. I thought it was funny.

Now that the combine numbers are in at DraftExpress, I think it's time to make my own draft board.

Over the past few days, I've gone from dropping Derrick Williams to bringing him all the way back to the top, as other SLCDunkers have convinced me that he's not going to be an attitude problem for the team.

Similarly, some guys I used to be high on have dropped due to bad combine numbers or attitude concerns. I'm sure I'll still change my mind before the draft.

I don't generally like Euros because of their contract issues and recent failures (Belinelli, Bargnani, etc, and to a lesser extent, Kosta Koufos). I do like Gallinari though.

If I haven't listed someone, it's either because I haven't seen enough to evaluate them or what I have seen, I haven't liked enough to draft.

NB: Last year I was high on both Patrick Patterson and Ekpe Udoh, so I'm not exactly an expert talent evaluator.

So here's the list:

Group 1:
Derrick Williams
Kyrie Irving

Group 2:
Enes Kanter
Brandon Knight
Kawhi Leonard
Kenneth Faried

Group 3:
Alec Burks
Jimmer Fredette
Chris Singleton
Bismack Biyombo

Group 4:
Marcus Morris
Markieff Morris
Tristan Thompson
Klay Thompson
