Summary: Tyler Honeycutt showed flashes of his potential in his two years at UCLA but is still developing his all-around game. Scouts are enamored by his legth, versatility and athleticism, but he will need to get much stronger before he can make an impact at the next level. Based on his upside, he should be a late first-round pick who could climb into the late teens.
Player Comparison: Nicolas Batum. Both players are long and rangy, possess capable, but often times inconsistent outside shots. If Honeycutt can groom his game like Batum has since entering the league, he could have a similar impact.
While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
