As the NBA regular season winds down and the NCAA tournament enters the Sweet 16, we are now getting a better and better view as to how the 2011 NBA draft will ultimately play out.
Therefore, it's time to formulate another 2011 NBA mock draft.
There have been a number of changes since the last mock draft, as the trade deadline passed with many franchises swapping their picks, while also seeing their team needs change.
Moreover, some NBA squads have raised their levels of play, while others have faded down the stretch, and consequently, the NBA standings—and the draft order—have witnessed significant changes.
But that's not all, as the stock of many draft prospects have fluctuated, with some rising and others falling.
So keeping all of these factors in mind, the following mock draft will provide a profile of each selection, as well as a description as to why each franchise would pick the player and how they would fit in with the team.
(This mock draft was formulated under the premise that a new NBA collective bargaining agreement will be reached and a lockout will be avoided.)
