NBA Draft 2012: The players in the Utah Jazz 'range' of Pick #47

Hey Jazz fans, so now -- essentially HOURS from the draft on Thursday night -- there are a bunch of mock drafts running around, being posted, revised, and scrutinized. Last year we had so much fun leading up to the NBA draft. This year, not so much. That doesn't mean we can't still start to have fun. Right? The draft is ALWAYS supposed to be fun. To prove this point I took a good long look at a bunch of the mock drafts and produced a list of players. It is all the players taken at the #47 pick (ours), and then all of the players taken in all of those mock drafts from picks five ahead of our pick to five picks after ours. This makes a range of 11 players for each mock draft. Over all it became a handy list of 25 total players. To see who they are, and their info . . . click on below . . .

The 25 lucky contestants to be in the #47 +/- 5 Range:

11 Jae Crowder 1 SF/PF 6'5.5 241 Marquette Sr Metta World Peace Tasmin Mitchell
12 Kris Joseph 1 SF 6'7 215 Syracuse Sr Gary Forbes Carlos Powell
Point Guards Mocks: Pos H W School Best case Worst case
1 Scott Machado 3 PG 6'1.75 205 Iona Sr Earl Watson Aaron Miles
2 Tyshawn Taylor 1 PG 6'4 177 Kansas Sr Jrue Holiday Armon Johnson
3 Tomas Satoransky 1 PG/SG 6'7.5 201 Czech Republic Int Sasha Vujacic Coby Karl

Clearly I have a bias towards bigmen from Georgetown -- so I'm gravitating to Sims at this point. He is reported to have face up passing skills and is super long. If we are not going for a big, that Thornike dude would be the ultimate 'troll' draft pick for Jazz fans, if we go wing. Please don't pick him though. Similarly the 6'8 PG from the Czech Republic would do the same thing to us. Jokes aside, you can't deny a guy who's best case scenario is Earl Watson.

Who do you like, from these lists?

Special thank you to DraftExpress for the measurements, and other info (like best case / worst case).
