Realistic Wish-List Pick: Bradley Beal, SG, Florida
Actual Pick: Damian Lillard, PG, Weber State
The Blazers' wish-list selection of Beal isn't all that far-fetched, as he could really go as high as No. 2 or drop all the way to six or seven, but if the stars do align for Portland and Beal falls into the team's lap, expect the Trail Blazers to snatch the shooting guard up.
Beal would bring significant offensive energy to the Trail Blazers squad and his rebounding ability would benefit a group that has practically no rebounding forces outside of its big men.
If Beal is not available at this point, the Blazers will have the honor of drafting the most unknown lottery pick of 2012: Damian Lillard.
Lillard's draft stock has been on the rise of late and he is considered by ESPN's Chad Ford to be the best available point guard in the draft.
The Weber State guard is a dynamic scorer, averaging 24.5 a game last season, and with Raymond Felton entering free agency and the subsequent uncertainty looming over the point guard position, Lillard will be a great option at No. 6.
