Everyone knows that drafting professional athletes is not an exact science.
Despite the uncertainties that go into drafting a player, however, there are a few trends.
Some teams just seem to nail their picks with a little more frequency than others. A bad pick doesn't always mean a bad player was picked. Sometimes a player will struggle in one system and excel in another.
Other times young players are simply not mature enough to attain a level of consistency that is high enough to satisfy NBA coaches and general managers.
Imagine if Andrew Bynum had landed on a team where he was needed to excel immediately? What if the Celtics were able to be more patient with Gerald Green?
With the 2012 NBA draft order set, the top picks are now known. We know that some teams will mess up what could have been a great pick.
Let's face it; some teams are just better at nailing high draft picks than others are.
Which teams picking in the top 10 will butcher their pick?
