It's never too early to release a NBA Mock Draft, and with the 2010-2011 regular season in the books, now is the logical time to take a first crack how the first-round picks will pan out in late June.

Derrick Williams and Kyrie Irving are the headliners, combo guards who epitomize athleticism and play beyond their years.

Kemba Walker, who took college basketball by storm from early March to early April has declared for the draft, and legions of fans across the US will unquestionably be eagerly awaiting his named to be called by David Stern.

Other stars like San Diego State's Kawhi Leonard and Naismith Player of the Year award winner Jimmer Fredette also headline the NBA's biggest offseason event.

As usual, there's an international flavor to this year's draft class with Jonas Valanciunas from Lithuania as a possible Top five pick.

Sleepers include Travis Leslie from Georgia, Chris Singleton from Florida State and Kenneth Faried from Morehead State. All are players that, on the right team, surrounded with experienced veterans, could become late-round gems.

You never know with the NBA Draft, and without a clear-cut No. 1 overall pick this time around, we should be in for a more unpredictable first-round than in recent memory.
