It is very difficult to accurately predict where in the draft a player will be selected. Outside of the first few picks, you should feel lucky to come close.
Truth is, NBA general managers wouldn't have it any other way. Us knowing who the Sacramento Kings or the Oklahoma City Thunder are going to draft only makes those teams more vulnerable.
At the same time, it is fun to try to pick the brains of the NBA front offices. And it is possible to make educated guesses.
If you think the Raptors are going to lose Chris Bosh to free agency this summer, it's safe to assume they will try and replace him with the No. 13 overall pick, right? I'm no Chad Ford, but I did my best to apply that same logic to all 30 first-round picks.
