Yes, the 2010 NBA Draft was held just over a month ago and the draftees have barely had a chance to even get their toes wet as professional athletes, but that doesn't mean that we can't start looking ahead to next year’s draft and start our speculating now. I mean, the 2011 class is so overwhelmed with talent that we need to start breaking it down now if we want to have any real chance of exploring every and all potential selections.
The 2011 Draft may be the most exciting and unpredictable one that we have seen in awhile. The majority of the names that are being thrown around are youngsters who have yet to prove their game at the collegiate level let alone in the professional ranks, as well as a number of highly touted international players. Don't let that fool you though; there are still a handful of college veterans in the mix that are also vying for a first round spot as well.
And rest assured, just as every year there is a number of Blue Devils who are at the top of many organization's lists as potential superstars as well as potential busts. Kyrie Irving, Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith are the most recognized Dookies who are looking to make an impact at the next level and more importantly prove that the supposed "Duke Curse" is just a myth.
From the 30th pick all the way to the number one selection, this mock draft will give you an idea of what the upcoming draft has in store and what incredible talent your favorite team might land.
